Poland’s Plenti, a marketplace that rents out electronic devices, raises over €220k

Warsaw-based Plenti, a marketplace that offers access to electronic devices on a subscription and rental basis, has raised fresh funding — over €220,000 (PLN 1 million) — from EKIPA Investments, MamStartup reports.

  • Founded in 2018 by Karol Klimas, Wojciech Wójtowicz, and Wojtek Rokosz, Plenti develops a marketplace that allows consumers to rent electronic devices on a short-term lease. 
  • The platform offers items ranging from phones, smart watches, and laptops to air purifiers, autonomous vacuum cleaners, coffee machines, Starlink terminals, and pizza ovens. Plenti’s services are currently used by over 150,000 users, who offer over 600 types of devices for rent.
  •  EKIPA Investments is a Polish VC fund investing around €50,000 to €200,000 in pre-seed and seed startups. Among its recent investments — Wroclaw-based platform INKsearch, enabling tattoo enthusiasts to find the right tattoo for themselves, as well as the artist, and Warsaw-based music database startup Closer Music.
  • The fresh round follows €5 million seed investment that Plenti closed in February. Using that funds, Plenti, as it promised, rolled out PlentiPartners program — an offer for entrepreneurs and businesses to supply the marketplace with their equipment.
