Venture capital fund Dutch Founders Fund invests EUR 750.000 in Voicebooking. Voicebooking is one of Europe’s fastest-growing online voice agencies. DFF will receive a minority stake in the eight-year-old platform, which founder Jente Kater also refers to as a “shop”. “It started as a voice-over webshop. Customers, which are often companies, immediately understand our proposition – without further additives.”
It is not known to what valuation DFF enters. Voicebooking’s valuation is not public. DFF co-founder Eric Veeneman: “The product is rock solid and they already have a good turnover, but with more attention to marketing and sales, they can further accelerate their rapid growth in Europe.”
Director Jente Kater: “DFF’s Venture Partners help us with their past experiences as founders. Our main goal is to become more data-driven – especially in the field of marketing and sales.” For now, this means setting up a new dashboard to monitor business developments.
Amsterdam-based Voicebooking already has an international client base and wants to grow further beyond national borders. Although the absolute numbers are still small, the concept proves to be successful in France, England, Switzerland, and the Nordics. “We already work for customers in 52 countries.” Kater says.
“A customer from the United Emirates who uses our platform for an Arabic voice-over, hires a voice-over through our platform, while the voice-over – quite literally – could live around their corner.”
