GP Bullhound invests in sports booking platform Playtomic
Madrid, 23 October 2018 – GP Bullhound announces its investment in Playtomic, the largest network of sports reservations in Spain. The funds raised will go toward accelerating the business across Spain and Europe.
Playtomic joins the pool of GP Bullhound’s fast-growing portfolio companies founded in Spain, including Wallapop, Jobandtalent, Ontruck, and most recently Stratio.
Pedro Claveria, Founder and CEO of Playtomic, said: “We are excited to have GP Bullhound as a partner. Using Playtomic’s technology, users can find and book a court in less than 3 clicks. Our vision is to deliver the best solutions to the industry and make users play even more, allowing sport clubs to increase their occupancy rates. Thanks to this investment, Playtomic users will be able to find other players to play with and get inspired to practice their favourite sport even more.”
Per Roman, Managing Partner of GP Bullhound, commented: “We’ve been following Pedro and his team closely, as Playtomic in under a year has built the leading Spanish sports reservation platform, and we’re proud to support their efforts to modernise a sector that was ripe for disruption and automatisation.”
