Zurbarán advises Fondo Bolsa Social on Kleta´s €2m funding round

Zurbarán Abogados has advised Fondo Bolsa Social as lead investor in Kleta´s funding round, securing €2 million, with Marc Gasol joining the company´s capital

-

Kleta, a start-up that offers bicycles under subscription, has closed a €2 million financing round led by Fondo Bolsa Social (a firm that only invests in projects with a social or environmental impact) and in which Banco Sabadell and basketball player Marc Gasol have also participated. The latter has entered the capital of a company that already had the financial backing of another top sportsman, FC Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen.

The company, founded in 2020 in Barcelona by two former Badi colleagues, Falk Siegel and Diego Casabe, will use the money raised to “consolidate its position” in the field of sustainable urban mobility, “one of the sectors with the greatest expectations for the future,” it said in a statement. Specifically, the start-up will invest the money to expand in Spain (it currently operates in Barcelona and Valencia and is preparing to land in Seville) and the rest of Europe, as well as to improve its application and expand its workforce. Its aim is to grow from the current 27 employees to 40 by the end of the year.

“The main value of Kleta is that it is a brave company that bets and fights to make our cities a little better,” said Gasol. “Not only does it contribute to the environment, but it also does it in a professional and daring way, promoting a healthy lifestyle,” he added.

Zurbarán Abogados advised Fondo Bolsa Social with a team led by partner Ricardo Torres, along with lawyers Ana Barroso and Blanca Compagni.
