Growth Letter - Issue 2/2016

Djäkne/Hittahem

Today, the largest shareholder in the real estate marketplace Hittahem, Bonnier, acquires all shares from the second largest shareholder Djäkne Startup Studio. As part of this transaction, Djäkne’s co-founder Magnus Wide, also resigns from his role as HittaHem’s chairman of the board. This is the third major exit by Djäkne with Mobenga in 2011 and Everysport Media Group in 2015. HittaHem’s exceptional growth trend seen in 2015 is showing no sign of slowing down in the new year. They are still basing their operations from their office at Djäkne and are now looking for more great backend, frontend and app developers.
