Barkyn nets €5 million investment
Gourmet pet food delivery start-up Barkyn has just netted a €5 million Series A investment round from venture capital investors.
The incubator company at UPTEC – Porto University’s Science and Technology Park – had developed a customised pet food delivery and online vet clinic service.
This investment round has been led by Indico Capital Partners and All Iron Ventures with the participation of Portugal Ventures and 200M Fund.
The investment will be used to complete the brand’s product line and expand its business.
With a portfolio of over 30 products that reach 40,000 homes in Portugal, Spain and Italy, Barkyn offers a monthly package with specialised foods and treats for dogs that can also include access to 24-hour online vet access.
Founded by André Jordão and Ricardo Macedo, Barkyn has already netted €7.8 million in investment. In 2019 it was one of 10 international startups chosen for the Google for Startups Growth Lab programme.
