What happened in H1 2022 at OneRagtime

What a first semester at OneRagtime! It’s been a busy H1 2022 at OneRagtime, let’s recap: ⬇️

🎉 We’re celebrating our 4th exit with our co-investors (after Jellysmack, Glose and Zenly) with +Simple’s LBO with private equity behemoth KKR & Co. Inc.

👉 We upgraded our regulatory framework moving from registered by Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) — France to fully certified by AMF as a ‘Société de Gestion de Portefeuille’. This is a big step for us, we will announce more soon!

😍 We’ve added 5 companies to the portfolio:
1) Staycation, start-up reinventing the hotel experience with a SaaS enabled marketplace turning hotels into experiences

3) hivenet, peer-to-peer cloud start-up founded by seasoned unicorn entrepreneur David Gurle
4) Shotgun!, music event SaaS and marketplace
5) HelloSafe, developer of comparison and brokerage platform for financial and insurance products

🏋🏻‍♀️ We’ve also welcomed 7 new people to strengthen our business and tech teams in our Paris 🇫🇷 and Barcelona offices 🇪🇸: Emma VERON-DURAND(Legal Counsel), Louis Pradere (Investor Catalyst), Koosha Zarei (Data Scientist), Sebastian Golijow (Full-Stack Developer), Myriam Bensiali(Finance Catalyst), and Mehdi Benjelloun (VC Ecosystem).

Our biggest achievements this semester have been all about growth: growth in our portfolio, our funds, our teams, and our capacity to disrupt as a company.

We couldn’t be happier to continue working together at OneRagtime with our 40+ companies portfolio and provide more value to our community.

🔥 This is just the beginning! Onwards.
