A decisive milestone for the Tyrolean camping app startup CAMPPA: Tyrolean company builder Tantum invests in the app solution for campers and thus finances the next development steps of the Tyrolean Young Entrepreneur Award winner.
Camppa Smart Parking System GmbH, based in the Wattens workshop, was founded in 2020 with the aim of making free parking spaces monetizable for entrepreneurs and farmers, for example, and offering campers an alternative to often overcrowded campsites or illegal wild parking. With the rollout in 2022 and several partnerships, such as the one with Maschinenring in Austria and Germany, almost 600 pillars have already been installed. A win-win-win for all sides.
Now the Tyrolean company is about to take the next development step. The pillar, which currently closes off the parking lot and is used to bill standing time with the help of the app, is to become even “smarter.”
“There are numerous new fields of application, such as booking leisure and cultural offers as well as breakfast or other culinary services in the region, which our app will be able to do in the future. In addition, there are other areas of application besides camping, such as the reservation of Fastlane parking spaces or the monitoring of free customer parking spaces that will be possible in the future with our Camppa APP,” says CEO Christian Keck.
For their innovative idea and best-practise implementation, the Camppa team was awarded the Young Entrepreneur Award 2022 by the Tyrolean Chamber of Commerce.
“We have created a real value-added solution for landowners and campers that makes everyday life much easier. Also in our future developments the problem solution stands in the first place – that makes us successful” so Christian Keck further.
With the new investor one did not get oneself unknown in the boat.
The Tyrolean company builder Tantum has been active and appreciated as an insider tip for investors and corporates for several years.
“With Tantum, we build innovative business concepts, help with their implementation in the market or integrate young ideas and trends into existing companies as part of corporate venture building,” says CEO Bernhard-Stefan Müller.
He added that the investment in Camppa was no coincidence. “We are already invested in a tinyhouse startup called “Acampo” and see a great market fit in Camppa due to the team and the innovative solution. Furthermore, we believe that in addition to the invested capital, we can also contribute strategically in the future to make Camppa’s vision of becoming the AirB’nB of mobile home owners a reality,” Müller continues.
Together they have big goals. For example, the new Camppa app is to be launched on the market this year. #bettertogether is capitalized in the cooperation.
Tantum joins at a valuation of 5.5 million euros. “We are very happy that we were allowed to invest in a Tyrolean startup- our first Tyrolean investment, which of course makes us particularly proud. Now it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work together.” concludes Müller.
