Kigo rental technology service secures $1.8 million funding round, plots expansion to Asia
Back-end systems in the vacation rental sector are also on the receiving end of investment, as Spain-based Kigo wins a $1.8 million Series A injection this week.
Kigo produces a number of services for vacation rental organisations including reservations systems, a channel manager and consumer-facing web platforms.
After its initial launch in Europe and North America (it also has offices in Paris and Philadelphia), Kigo says it is looking to the east and is launching a subsidiary in Singapore this week.
