Locketgo, a Montréal-based provider of temporary storage solutions, has raised $1.2 million in seed funding.
The round’s Canadian investors included Anges Québec, CH Group, Maple Leaf Angels, Real Ventures and Jeffrey Kadanoff.
Locketgo will use the cash to enter more of the North American market, expand its team and continue its research and development.
Founded in 2016 by CEO Gabrielle La Rue, Locketgo offers a turnkey rental service of secure, intelligent lockers for events, such as concerts, conventions and festivals, as well as permanent installations.
The storage solution also offers cellular charging and makes it easy for users to go to festivals, conventions, concerts and more. Users can book in advance, avoid queues, store personal items and enjoy the event.
The startup, a graduate of accelerators Centech and FounderFuel, will use the round’s proceeds to expand across the North American market, grow its team and continue research and development.
Over the years, the company has contributed to the big-name event slike Osheaga, Ile Soniq, Heavy MTL, the Montreal International Jazz Festival, C2 Montreal and many other events. As of April 2019, Locketgo will count Live Nation, world leader in event organization, among its clients.
