The Belgian platform Hoplr, which aims to offer citizens a digital neighborhood network, has just completed a third funding round, which has enabled it to raise 2 million euros, she announced on Tuesday.
The platform of the Belgian start-up founded in 2014 allows residents of the same neighborhood to get in touch, organize activities, exchange objects and tools, find a babysitter or a plumber. nearby, to report problems, etc. Currently, more than 500,000 families in 2,000 neighborhoods use Hoplr, 78% of them more than once a week. Hoplr also cooperates with more than 100 local authorities in Belgium and the Netherlands who use the platform.
The Covid-19 and the digitization trend have accelerated the development of the digital network, which was awarded several times in 2020, in particular by the European Commission.
The new money comes from the investment funds of Belfius, Matexi and CAREvolution (Partena mutualities). It will make it possible to diversify its service offering. In the near future, Hoplr intends to “use neighborhood dynamics as a basis to allow people to live longer at home”. Brussels will be the first city in which Hoplr will launch a new innovative concept of local care.
