Camping marketplace startup, Wildpoint, has announced a new pre-seed funding round which has already hit €310,000. The website allows campers to book outdoor stays at campsites, caravans, tipis, and cabins all in a single marketplace. 

The round was led by QVentures with participation from ADA Ventures. The raised capital will help Wildpoinig accelerate expansion plans and the development of new features. 

Oliver Windle, Co-Founder, and CEO of Wildpoint, said: 

“Working with QVentures has been fantastic. From the first call with Brian Hatton and Harveer Bharaj, I knew that Wildpoint’s vision and mission-aligned perfectly with the type of businesses that QVentures strive to support and fund. Our future is incredibly exciting, and I’m thrilled that QVentures will be on the journey with us, to support and help us grow into a successful, thriving online marketplace.”

Only over a year old, Wildpoint offers an easy way for outdoor lovers to find the perfect excursion to satisfy their camping needs. The website allows searchers to filter results based on characteristics like waterfalls, lakes, forests, and nearby activities to ease planning and get the most out of a camping trip.

Wildpoint’s team consists of talent from big-name companies like Airbnb, Microsoft, and Airbus. 

The website also allows those who own large pieces of land to rent out plots for staycation goers in a similar way that Airbnb works. The platform is still in the development phases but has over 500 hosts signed up on the waitlist for its official launch. 

The startup plans to focus on the UK camping market before expanding into Europe, and eventually globally.
