We are happy that our client startup that connects digital technology and traditional craftsmanship is successfully raising capital for expansion. We have dressed topite.cz for launch with complete brand identity, website design, and communication package.
Topíte.cz focuses on the digitization of heating. Founded only two years ago, the startup has now received a new investment of three million EUR and is backed by Inven Capital funds belonging to the ČEZ and Enern Group, which together with Presto Ventures already participated in the previous 20 million round.
In total, the "heating" startup has already received financing in the amount of approximately 100 million crowns, while it plans to use the newly obtained funds for a massive expansion in the domestic market and abroad. The first foreign country of choice is Poland, the launch is planned before the summer of 2021 At the same time, the company is expanding its range of services and is also planning to enter the photovoltaic market.
Topíte.cz was founded two years ago by Daniel Helcl together with two well-established professionals, Karel Náprstek and Jiří Švéda. Their primary goal was to move the heating market to the 21st century, and according to Helcl, the startup is already the largest heating installation company in the Czech Republic, specializing in the installation and servicing of heating sources, air conditioning and recuperation.
"Through our web platform, Topite.cz provides customers with maximum comfort and transparency. The digital platform enables the scaling of Topite.cz services not only on the domestic market but also in the Central European region.
In the summer, Topíte.cz surpassed the level of fifty heating engineers in the internal team, and the company expects higher tens of millions of crowns in sales this year and yet it is still just a beginning.
In December, topite.cz plans to move to new offices in Prague, where the plans are to build a showroom and further improve the customer service. The plans include, among other things, new service packages with unified warranty conditions for various manufacturers. For a fixed annual fee, the customer also receives regular service and all spare parts.
"Since September, we have also made great progress in programming our internal application, with the working title „Boiler Room“. It helps us process individual orders, and over time we want to completely flip all functionalities into it, including material in the warehouse. By the summer, it will be ready for both our internal team and as a marketplace connecting external servicemen with job opportunities in the area, ”explains Helcl.
