Entrepreneurs at LIOS Ventures

The Team behind

PaulCamper

Dirk Fehse has lined up a team of meanwhile 60 heads and hearts to make camping accessible for everyone. Following the approach of the sharing economy since 2013, the Berlin-based start-up PaulCamper offers a platform connecting owners of campervans and motorhomes with likeminded people to hire and hire out private campers and motorhomes – straightforward, personal, fair and safe due to a specifically developed insurance in partnership with Allianz. Today, PaulCamper is the largest and fastest-growing platform and community for camper sharing in Europe. LIOS Ventures has started backing PaulCamper at an early stage.

The Team behind

Holidu

When Johannes and Michael wanted to plan a trip to Portugal, they saw how time-consuming and frustrating it can be to find the right vacation rental. With their strong technical background in image recognition, they started to build an integrated offer, a metasearch engine to find the best location on one site – HOLIDU was born! Taking it a step further, they developed a tool, which allows homeowners to make their property available on all of the most important booking platforms – perfectly matching travellers with homeowners! 

With the early support from LIOS Ventures, HOLIDU has growing strongly, even in the toughest ever 2020 Covid year at +50%!
