DWF advises Macif on its investment in Karos

15 March 2021
DWF has advised Macif on its minority investment in French start-up Karos, the leading French company in home-work carpooling. 
Macif, through its subsidiary dedicated to investment Macif Innovation, has participated alongside the European Commission via its venture capital fund EIC Fund, in a €7 million fundraising round by Karos. 
The investment will enable Karos, to develop its home-work carpooling offer and to expand in Europe. Notably Karos has signed a contract with the Danish Motorists Association (FDM) to offer its services and methods to individuals, employers and communities under the local Ta'Med brand.

The DWF Corporate team which advised Macif was led by Alexandre Piette, partner, and Marie-Noëlle Guilpain, associate.

Bignon Lebray assisted EIC Fund with Alexandre Ghesquière, partner and Karos was advised by Alexandre Wibaux and Jérémie Noël.

The investment funds Aster, Eiffel Investment Group and Aglaé Ventures, Karos' historical shareholders, are also participating in this capital increase.
