Paris-based adventure and extreme sports booking site Adrenaline Hunter has secured another €2 million, bring the total raised so far to more than €3 million.
The business raised €600,000 at the end of 2015 and a similar amount earlier this year.
Mathe told tnooz that the funding would help Adrenaline Hunter’s global aspirations in a B2B and B2C context.
It is working on a booking management tool for suppliers to manage their presence on the platform, taking Airbnb’s tools for hosts as its inspiration.
The tool is provisionally slated to launch mid-2018.
Mathe also said that the business is planning to open an office in Asia-Pacific, with various locations under consideration. “Around 35% of customers are in France, but we have bookings from the US, Australia and South Africa so we need to be able to offer support 24/7.”
The latest round had been led by BPIFrance, which has a dedicated tourism fund, and Tengelmann Ventures. Tengelmann is based in Germany and its stake in Adrenaline Hunter is its first foray into France.
