“Originally, we had been looking for potential cooperation partners for Massivkonzept via our business angels. The fact that the ultimate result was a purchase by fab.com all the more confirms our strategic orientation for Massivkonzept”, said b-v lead investor Oliver Pabst.
Massivkonzept provides shelving, wardrobe, table and seating, and delivers worldwide.
Massivkonzept’s Daniel Kollmann said. “The founders were in the short period of time with b-to-v, highly impressed by the strong network and that the collaboration was extremely professional and pleasant”.
B-to-v will continue participating in the future of fab.com as a shareholder and is even making additional investments in the company.
Headquartered in St Gallen, Switzerland, b-to-v is a network of private investors in Europe. It invests in start-ups, mid-size companies and special investment opportunities in the areas of internet and mobile, life sciences and clean technologies.
In February the firm acquired stakes in 13 of Karolinska Development’s 25 portfolio companies for €30m.
