After 3 years of significant growth, Wrapmate decides to take strategic outside capital.
DENVER, Colo., April 7th (The Wire) – Wrapmate, a Denver-based tech and service company in the vehicle wrapping industry, has announced today that it has raised an oversubscribed pre-seed round of $1.7 million led by Automotive Ventures in addition to a supergroup of angel investors.
"Automotive Ventures led Wrapmate's pre-seed round of capital to help accelerate growth, with the belief that the startup will ultimately become a category-defining business. We have a deep conviction that Wrapmate is well-positioned to transform the vehicle wrap industry," says Steve Greenfield, Automotive Ventures's Founder and Managing Director. "We see Wrapmate as a catalyst for expanding the vehicle wrap industry as a whole while providing a better experience for consumers and service providers alike. We're thrilled to join them as a partner on this journey.”
“We are extremely excited to have an incredible strategic group of investors at this stage,” says Chris Loar, Founder and CEO of Wrapmate. “The combination of Automotive Ventures and our angels provides Wrapmate with the perfect support at the perfect time.”
Loar founded Wrapmate in 2018 after spending over 12 years in the vehicle wrapping industry and finding himself frustrated with the historically underdeveloped and fragmented nature of the space.
