27 November 2019:
Leavy.co has raised $14 million in seed funding. The funding round was led by Prime Ventures. Dominique Vidal (Angel Investor and Partner at Index Ventures) also participated in the funding round.
The deal was advised by Chausson Finance.
Aziza Chaouachi, CEO and Chairwoman of Leavy.co, said, “Travel no longer means heading off to the Canary Islands for a week. It’s visiting your family for the weekend when you are studying abroad, or heading off to Barcelona for that sunny summer job. Leavy.co is about helping our members live the lives they want in a meaningful way, no matter where they are from, who they are or their budget.”
Pieter Welten, partner at Prime Ventures and Board Member at Leavy.co said, “Aziza has an exhilarating vision for the future of travel. What with a millennial community that is 100% self-managed, the social impact the company offers is both game-changing and very scalable. We couldn’t be more thrilled to back Leavy.co.”
Leavy.co was founded in 2018. The company has 100+ employees across 6 markets (Paris, Amsterdam, London, Madrid, Rome, Lisbon) and plan to open in the US by the end of 2019.
