Alongside Founders Bridge during a EUR 300.000 investment round in Mero, a Romanian beauty salon appointments platform

act Botezatu Estrade Partners is once again alongside Founders Bridge, the Sweden-based VC fund, now in the EUR 300.000 investment round in Mero, a Romanian start-up that developed a platform for facilitating appointments at local beauty salons. The funding will be used to accelerate the company’s growth.

The act team coordinated by Managing Partner Ștefan Botezatu, backed by Andrei Hâncu (tech lawyer, Managing Associate), assisted Founders Bridge in the drafting and negotiation of the transaction documentation. The team is positioning itself on the market as one of the top players in the legal sector dedicated to deal structuring between start-ups and VCs/angel investors.

Liviu Munteanu, Partner Founders Bridge: “Stefan and Andrei’s dedication towards this sector is visible in every aspect of their work, making it easier for us to take informed decisions and further steps. Our collaboration has always been impeccable, which made us retain their services for this deal and probably for future ones, too.”

Currently employing 12 people, Mero was founded four years ago in Craiova by a group of young IT specialists and economists and is led by Andreea Trif, a professional with extensive experience in technology and media companies, who will further coordinate the product development.

The platform can already boast over 700 salons registered in 50 cities, for which it generates a constant flow of new clients (around 100,000 monthly reservations facilitated through the platform).
