Announcing our first deal in France. We just completed an €3.5M seed round in Paris-based Leeway, the startup that is building an end-to-end software-as-a-service solution for your contracts. Leeway lets you centralize all your contracts in a single repository, go through multiple negotiation steps and trigger a DocuSign event for the signature.

Happy to announce a new deal in Germany: we’ve lead the €4.2 seed round in Munch-based Parkdepot. The European parking market is dominated by a few traditional parking companies offering on-site staff or barriers / ground sensors. That is where Parkdepot comes in: they offer a fully digital solution based on strategically positioned cameras, requiring no expensive hardware, barriers or on-site staff. The result is a system that gives parking lot owners full control and offers a seamless experience for customers that want to park their vehicle: no more parking discs or paper tickets.

Announcing our first deal of 2021: we’ve lead the €6 million Series A for Cloudtalk, a Bratislava-based startup that offers a cloud call center SaaS tool. Whether for sales or customer support teams, all businesses need a virtual phone solution. Unfortunately, most current solutions require time-consuming setups, are expensive, and lack easy integrations into everyday business tools (such as Zendesk or Pipedrive), which most businesses have become used to. Believe it or not, many of them are still on-premise. CloudTalk is a modern, easy-to-use, cloud-based alternative to these tools: sales, customer support, and call center agents can easily route calls to the most relevant person, they can directly input information from calls into CRM or other systems and can call from anywhere with local numbers.

We are happy to announce that we have just launched our fourth fund with a first close of €70M. Our focus will remain as it has always been: leading pre-seed up to Series A rounds in B2B software companies across Europe. Working remotely has been our way of working for years and we’re not new to closing deals remotely. Against that backdrop, while having just raised a new fund and doubling down on what we do best, we’re very proud that henQ 4 is here!
