We are pleased to announce that our portfolio company Acamp has acquired Ställplatser, a camping community app with over 100,000 active users across Europe. The camping app is a popular register for campers and camping hosts, both in and outside the Nordic region.
The acquisition is an important step towards further operational expansion across the Nordics and Europe.
Öjje Holt, co-founder of Acamp commented: “The acquisition of Ställplatser gives us a data set of destinations and user behavior. It’s the perfect step to now introducing us to the whole Nordic market, and to continue our journey towards all of Europe.”
Holt continued: “We are not just offering traditional camping sites to stay at, Acamp is more than facilitating the accommodation, and we will be more than a marketplace for life experiences – becoming a new global model for sustainable tourism.”
“We look forward to being able to unite the best of the two worlds that we see Acamp and Ställplatser represent. We aim high and we aim for Europe, but the first focus now is to establish ourselves together with Ställplatser as the given camping marketplace in the Nordic region for 2022” he added.
Magnus Grönbek, founder of Ställplatser commented: “I was very happy to be contacted by Acamp, and since they were able to show very solid preparatory work, analysis and a plan for the future, it feels completely safe to now leave my app to them. I’m super excited to follow Acamp’s journey!”
