Cobee Raises $40 Million in Series B  

by Kay Aloha Villamor in

Cobee, a Madrid, Spain-based employee benefits and flexible remuneration platform, announced that it raised $40 million in Series B funding, bringing its total raised to around €60 million.

The round was co-led by Octopus Ventures and Notion Capital, with participation from previous backers Balderton Capital, Speedinvest, and Dila Capital. 

The funds will allow Cobee to further develop its current business in Spain and Portugal as well as expand into new markets. The company starts its internationalization to Latin America in one of the biggest markets in the region: Mexico.

Borja Aranguren, co-founder and CEO of Cobee: “For us, it’s very important that investors understand our market and share the vision of what we want to build. Both Octopus and Notion had previously considered other employee benefits startups in Europe, but could not get convinced. However, our vision matched perfectly with their thesis, so it’s been a perfect match. We have an outstanding combination of investment funds in Europe and Latam, which will unlock the potential in our target markets.”

The company expects to increase its staff to over 200 people in the next 18 months to strengthen its main business areas in different hubs: Madrid, Lisbon, and soon Mexico and other markets in Southern Europe.
