YPOG advises Planet First on €100 million Series C round of FINN

Berlin, Januar 2024 YPOG advised the growth equity fund Planet First Partners on the €100 million Series C financing round of FINN.

Planet First led the round and other existing investors participated in the new financing round. Among them are HV Capital, Korelya Capital, UVC Partners, White Star Capital and Picus Capital. This brings FINN's valuation to over US$600 million.

Founded in 2019, the start-up FINN has developed a car subscription platform that aims to make mobility flexible and climate-neutral at the same time.

The Munich-based company intends to use the capital raised to accelerate its growth in the electric car segment, with the aim of more than doubling the current 40% share of low-emission vehicles by 2028 and thus giving people the opportunity to test electric cars in their everyday lives. To date, the start-up has more than 25,000 subscribers and recently generated annual sales of around €160 million.
