CSI Protect – Private Placement: Undisclosed amount

Tofte & Company – CSI Protect secures funding

We are proud to announce that CSI Protect has raised a significant round of financing from a group of investors led by Henrik Friborg.

From it’s US HQ in Los Angeles, CA. CSI Protect is building it’s North American business centred around Forensic DNA property marking, forensic coding and asset identification solutions which deter theft and aid recovery of stolen property.

The Company has been at the forefront of providing the Police and Insurance recommended property marking solutions since 2015. Since then, CSI Protect has helped homeowners, businesses, local authorities, hospitals and schools protect their property. With already established business relationships in 8 states and partnerships with several major Law Enforcement Agencies like LAPD, CSI Protect was seeking funding to ensure a rapid expansion throughout the entire US market. The past 3 years have shown outstanding results and all major US retailers and Law Enforcement Agencies have shown significant interest in protecting their local communities, employees and valuables using DNA technology.

We pride ourselves on top quality, accredited products, the best customer service and exceptional value. In fact, repeat business is growing as more and more satisfied customers return to us year after year. Key markets include B2B, Education, Government, Police and B2C. Our goal is to reduce a number of crimes including domestic and commercial burglary, robbery, metal theft, vehicle theft and theft of cycles.

“As a result of our rapid expansion in the US market additional funding was needed in order to keep momentum. Through a mutual international contact we were recommended to contact Sasja Dalgaard, Partner at Tofte & Company. Sasja came highly recommended, but being a US company seeking funding for a US expansion we were armed with a fair amount of skepticism and questions. I am happy to say that for the first phone call to the final Due Diligence we have received the most professional and result orientated advice and guidance from the entire Tofte & Company team, but Sasja has a special place in our CSI hearts. Sasja has continuously outperformed all out expectations and been a priceless partner during the entire process. The professional approach has allowed us to focus on our US operations while the funding process was on full speed. Being in the hands of a professional team allowed us to feel confident that we would achieve our common goal and find the right match for our business,” says Kristian Brandt, Co-Founder and & COO of CSI Protect.

“It has been a great pleasure to work alongside the founders Kristian Brandt and Henrik Olsen in this process and it is obvious that they possess the needed determination to conquer the US market. The product is unmatched and with the capital injection and an active investor team with deep industry knowledge they are on a path to succes. Lead investor – Henrik Friborg co-founded Milestone Systems (Sold to Canon Group in 2014) and that is a match that I am proud of since his past journey and experiences makes him the ideal investor for CSI Protect. I very much look forward to follow the company,” says Sasja Dalgaard, Partner at Tofte & Company.

Biva

Biva – Private Placement: Undisclosed amount

Tofte & Company – Biva receives capital to pursue omnichannel growth strategy

We are proud to announce that the Danish online furniture company Biva has raised an undisclosed amount from a team of highly competent investors. Amongst these are Jimmy Maymann (former CEO of Huffington Post and well known serial investor), who becomes chairman of Biva’s board, ecommerce expert Christian Kusk (founder of Stylepit), who will also enter the board and Christian Høyer (CEO at Wunderwear). The new board and the management of Biva will work hard to achieve the Company’s goal: to become the leading online furniture store.

“I am impressed with how far CEO Jesper Jørgensen and Sales and Marketing Director Rune Furbo has taken the new Biva version 2.0 already, and there is no doubt that the combination of these new investors and the Company’s potential is spot on. One thing is to find the right funding for a company, another is to connect the company with the right competences and experiences to make the company grow even further. I am sure that Biva will profit from these experienced profiles, when it comes to creating Denmark’s leading online furniture store,” says Sasja Dalgaard, Partner at Tofte & Company.

“The entire process of working with Tofte & Company has been of great value. Especially their financial advisory and the process of preparations has helped us not only to find investors, but to find the right investors. It has been impressing to experience a process where we end up being able to choose between a field of competent investors. Now we can make our vision a reality creating Denmark’s leading online furniture store,” says Jesper Jørgensen, Managing Director at Biva.

Jesper Jørgensen founded the new version of Biva together with Sales & Marketing Director Rune Furbo in 2014. They call it Biva 2.0 which – opposed to the old Biva – is an online furniture store with flagship stores in Aalborg, Fredericia and Copenhagen.

“Biva has in recent years undergone a transformation from an old school retail business to stepping into the online scene. Jesper and Rune has already taken the first steps, but as I see it, it’s just the beginning. There is a huge potential for a focused omnichannel strategy to make the company scalable. Therefore I am now supporting BIVA not only by investing money but also part of my time,” says Jimmy Maymann, former CEO of Huffington Post, serial entrepreneur and investor.

And when it comes to creating a successful online business Biva holds another strong card in hand. Christian Kusk, who in 2000 founded Stylepit – one of the leading online stores – has also invested in Biva and will become part of the board.

“I look forward to contributing with my experience and know-how on what mechanisms that drive online sales. With more than fifteen years of experience in online sales, I see tremendous potential for Biva, which in many ways follows the current trend that sales move from the physical stores to online,” says Christian Kusk.

And just the fact that revenue moves from the shops and on to the internet, is what has driven the vision of ‘the new Biva’ where you shop furniture while sitting at home on the couch, so to say.

About Biva:
In 2014 Rune Furbo and Jesper Jørgensen founded the new Biva, while transforming the company from being actual stores into an online webshop with three flagship stores. The ambitions for the future Biva is high, the goal is to become the leading online furniture store with a focused omnichannel strategy.
