KPMG Law advises XPRESS Ventures on financing round

KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (KPMG Law) advised XPRESS Ventures Beteiligungs GmbH on a pre-seed financing round for retail tech start-up HomeRide.

HomeRide brings together product availability from local retailers on one platform and offers customers same-day delivery across stores. This purchasing promise is to be based on technological integration with well-known retail chains and logistics partners, without the need for additional logistics capacities. In addition to Xpress, early-stage investor SchneiderGolling and business angels such as Xentral CEO and founder Benedikt Sauter, Hagebau Connect CEO Marco Werner, and start-up recruiters Melina Brandstetter and Felix Finger are among those participating in the current financing round.

XPRESS Ventures is a Berlin-based company builder specializing in building early-stage startups at the intersection of technology and logistics. In addition to pre-seed capital and digital expertise, Xpress offers access to investors and logistics, tech, and marketing services, among others. The portfolio includes startups in the last mile, online pharmacy, fulfillment and retail sectors. XPRESS, which currently has eight employees, was founded in 2020 by the family-run medium-sized company Fiege Logistik and is currently led by serial founder Matthias Friese.

KPMG Law, led by Berlin partner Stefan Kimmel, together with manager Tamara Ingrid Granzow, provided advice on the transaction structuring as well as on the drafting and negotiation of the underlying contracts.

Advisor to XPRESS Ventures Beteiligungs GmbH:

KPMGLaw Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH: Stefan Kimmel (Partner, Corporate/M&A, Lead Partner), Tamara Ingrid Granzow (Manager, Corporate/M&A, both Berlin)
