How Bliq secured its seed round of 2 million EUR

Berlin-based Bliq secures €2 million to help delivery and ridesharing workers streamline jobs from Uber, Free Now, Bolt & Ola

German mobility software startup Bliq has closed a heavily oversubscribed seed funding round of €2 million.

The Berlin-based investor Amplifier Ventures led the round with New York-based Space Capital, with Atlantic Labs, Proeza Ventures, Revel and the angel investor Andreas Kupke also participating in the round. The Bliq Ride app aids self-employed drivers (so-called gig workers) in the organisation of their rides and displays all ridesharing providers in one app. The new funding will go towards Bliq’s European expansion and further develop the functional scope of Bliq Ride.

Bliq has been active in the German market since 2018 and has so far offered its Bliq Ride service in Cologne, Berlin, and Munich. Bliq’s business model is based on the growing alternative transport industry, where providers such as Uber, Free Now, and Bolt place orders with independent drivers.

Until recently, innovations in urban mobility have always focused on the end-user. The workers, the drivers who work every day for many of these services, have been left out. With Bliq, we are making it easier for drivers to do their daily work and ensure greater equality in a market dominated by a few powerful players. We are excited to use this investment to expand our services to drivers outside of Germany
