Harba is excited to announce that in July 2019, the company has successfully raised funds from the High Seas Invest led by Esben Halding and the Danish Growth Fund. The funds will be used for further product refinement and global expansion.
With new investment the Harba team will continue improving their current marina management products. Ensuring high product quality and customer satisfaction is a key area of focus for the company.
Harba has developed an exciting technology that solves a number of challenges for marinas and boaters. This is an area where digitalisation has not yet broken through, and we see Harba as an innovative company with a strong team that has every opportunity to conquer the market. Our investment in Harba is an indication that we see a huge international potential for its cutting edge products. We are very happy to be onboard and help out on this exciting voyage.
– Esben Halding, lead investor at the High Seas Invest.
The new investment round will enable Harba to further capitalize on its position as the leading provider of marina management solutions in Denmark as well as to drive further international expansion in other European countries and overseas.
Our goal is to empower every marina and boater across the world to reap the benefits of the state-of-art technology and digitalization. With this investment we are able to bring our products to the next level as well as to prepare them for some other very promising markets like the US or Carribeans. Such global focus allows marinas, harbours and yacht clubs across the world to learn from one another and implement various cutting edge processes that are used in other parts of the world. We have already seen amazing benefits from implementing ideas and features suggested by marina staff across continents into our software and hardware portfolio. We are planning to continue this valuable cooperation in the future.
– Christian Elkrog, CEO and Founder at Harba.
