Silverpeak advises multi-modal urban transport platform Trafi on Series B financing

Silverpeak, the technology investment bank, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Trafi, the Vilnius and London based multi-modal urban transport platform, on its financing round led by Sumitomo Corporation and Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance. The two Japanese corporates were joined by existing investors Octopus and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

Founded in 2007, Trafi is a technology platform for mobility. Their holistic technology suite enables partners to offer multi-modal transit services and systematically optimize cities., Trafi works with cities such as Berlin, Zurich and Munich, and with leading companies like Lyft, Google, Apple, Gojek and the Volkswagen Group.

David Ford, Managing Director at Silverpeak, said, “Trafi clearly is a leader in multi-modal mobility and its technology is chosen by the most demanding clients. Martynas and the Trafi team continued to execute on their plan even in the current environment, which provided the comfort to the investors to get the transaction done.”

Silverpeak was appointed due to its expertise in the Mobility sector, to advise the company on its financing strategy, aimed at capturing the growth in demand for multi-modal enabling technologies. We approached a range of financial and strategic counterparties who have strong interest in Mobility investment and then managed the transaction to closing.

Pietro Strada, a Managing Partner at Silverpeak, said, “It’s been a pleasure working with Martynas and helping them on this next step in their journey. They’ve built an amazing platform and we’re excited to follow their progress over the coming years.”

This is Silverpeak’s fourth deal in the Mobility sector in the last two years.
