Fever, a city experience platform, has raised $35 million in new financing.
Rakuten Capital, the investment arm of internet services company Rakuten, led the round for the London and Madrid-based company.
Existing investor Atresmedia and Michael Zeisser, the former chairman of U.S. investments for Alibaba Group, also participated in the financing.
Fever, which curates experiences in major cities primarily for the domestic market, raised $20 million in a Series C round just over a year ago.
Ignacio Bachiller, co-founder and CEO, says: “The investment comes at an important time for Fever, as we expand our platform, enter new markets, and shape the experience landscape with our Fever Originals.
The company says it plans to accelerate expansion following successful launches in Paris, Los Angeles, Lisbon and Manchester last year.
Fever will also boost its engineering and data science teams.
