Seaber.io raises €500,000 in funding from Lifeline Ventures
HELSINKI, Finland (10 June 2020) – Seaber.io, the Finnish maritime technology company, has announced an investment round to expand its operations and ramp up software development.
Seaber.io’s unique digital platform for bulk and breakbulk shipping is revolutionising the shipping industry with tools to simplify and unify the planning and communications of shipments. The software is apt for both charterers and shipowners and brings the most benefits when both parties are using it together. Seaber's maritime software has huge potential, as there are no planning optimisation solutions currently available.
“By investing in Seaber.io Lifeline is betting on the second wave of digitalisation in industries that did not benefit widely in earlier digitalisation efforts. We see a huge potential in Seabers ability to help small and big shipping companies with improving their operations and see a fruitful partnership going forward,” says Lifeline’s Partner Kai Backman.”
Seaber’s founders Sebastian Sjöberg and Mikael Sand have been working on Seaber since late 2017 and have been growing the team over the course of the last year. This year will mark an important milestone with the first customers starting to use the shipment planning solution.
“We are delighted to have the support from Lifeline and work together to bring the shipping industry towards digitalisation. Our vision is to be there at the front lines driving shipping towards a new phase where technology can be utilised to benefit everyone”, says Sebastian Sjöberg, founder and CEO of Seaber.io.
Seaber, a Helsinki-based software company, is led by people with versatile maritime backgrounds. It helps optimise commercial operations via a unique planning, communication and reporting platform. It connects and enables all stakeholders, such as charterers, ship owners, port agents, and brokers to streamline processes and increase profitability.
