Tiptapp, a Stockholm, Sweden-based company providing a marketplace for finding people helping with house chores, announced in a press release that it secured SEK 26M ($2.9M) in a fresh investemnt round.

The money was provided by new and existing investors, including Sophia Bendz, Filip Engelbert and Jonas Nordlander, and will be used to further expand the company's operations in London, UK.

TippTapp, founded in October 2015 by Anders Lövbrand, Tim Bjelkstam (CEO), David Höök and Fredric Rylander, developed a mobile application that acts as a marketplace for connecting with helpers - regular people with a car, some extra space and time on their hands - available for moving stuff.

The service had some of its services banned by the city of Stockholm in the fall of 2018, due to environment concerns.

Since its founding, TipTapp secured almost $5M in risk capital, from investors including Ashley Heppenstall, Erik Fischbeck, GP Bullhound, Per Brilioth or Pierre Siri.
