Capitaine Train grabs $6.3 million to build the best service to book train tickets
Capitaine Train just raised another $6.3 million (€5.5 million) to expand its activities.
There is nothing as cool as riding a high-speed train across Europe. But buying train tickets is also one of the worst online experiences. French startup Capitaine Train is all about making this process as seamless and complete as possible. The company just raised another $6.3 million (€5.5 million) to expand its activities.
Alven Capital is leading the round, with existing investors Index Ventures and CM-CIC Capital Privé putting in more money. TheFamily and business angels, such as Xavier Niel and Liligo founder Pierre Bonelli, also invested. Former Deutsche Bahn France president Daniel Beutler is also joining the startup as COO.
Instead of rewriting a profile on Capitaine Train as I already did, I’m going to tell you why Capitaine Train stands out as a startup. The company’s website and apps are the best ecommerce experience I have ever seen.
