Pisa (PI), 16th November 2015.
Kiunsys gets the more substantial round of equity crowdfunding achieved so far in Italy thanks to the collaboration with the Starsup platform, among the first portals authorized by the Consob to the online collection of venture capital for innovative start-ups.
Kiunsys is emerging as a key player in the market of Smart Urban Mobility, Smart Parking and city logistics. To date Kiunsys solutions are used at full capacity by more than 25 Italian cities (including Naples, Pisa, Florence, Folrì, Verona, Mantua, etc.) and serve a population of over 4 million citizens.
The capital increase marks the start of a new path of growth for Kiunsys. The injection of capital will serve to consolidate the position in Italy and to push forward the internationalization. What we are looking for, in Italy and abroad, are cities willing to innovate, innovate and innovate 😉
Paolo Lanari, CEO and co-founder of Kiunsys, does not hide his emotion and his satisfaction: “The closure of the deal is an important recognition of the hard work done so far: besides the confirmation that we get daily from our clients, now we also have the final validation of our business project. I therefore thank the investors, who believed in our vision and in our ability to achieve it, the team, for the passion and dedication to the daily challenges, and all the people who support us, or have supported us over the years, in our ambitious challenge “.
Also Yann Inghilesi, CEO of Red Lions, the lead investor, is very satisfied: “We have found a compelling vision and an high quality expertise in Kiunsys. However, what has convinced us the most is the enthusiastic response of the Kiunsys’ existing customers, which obviously derives from the value of the team and of the technological solutions. The fact that this knowledge was born in Italy, is in this case an element of competitiveness and robustness of the business. Indeed Italy, characterized by cities with very complex urban situations and regulations, has been the first to face and solve such challenges. For this reason worldwide cities are precisely imitating Italy: for us the marriage with a company who is emerging on the Italian market is therefore a guarantee of the Kiunsys’ value in the Italian and foreign market “.
