Laundrapp, a London-based startup we’ve mentioned as a British startup to look out for in 2016, today announced it had closed a further €5.9 million fundraising round to fuel continued growth in the already popular ‘Uber for Laundry’ style service. The names of the investors remain undisclosed. Laundrapp describes itself as UK’s market leader in on-demand laundry and dry cleaning services.
Launched just 18 months ago, Laundrapp has enjoyed rapid growth and is now available in over 100 towns and cities across the UK, having opened a new town and city each week since launch. The fresh capital will enable Laundrapp to grow its award-winning service internationally and expand to a full nationwide UK service in the coming months.
Edward Relf, Laundrapp Co-founder & Chief Exec commented, “It’s an exciting time for Laundrapp. The rate of growth has been tremendous and, despite uncertainties about the general economic climate, our business has never been more popular. It’s a massive British start-up and soon to be global success story!”.
Laundrapp offers free collection and delivery, as well as professional dry cleaning from just £2. The Laundrapp application has been downloaded over 200,000 times since launch and is one of the UK’s fastest growing on-demand tech businesses. The app is free to download on iOS, Android and Amazon devices across both mobile, tablet and desktop.
