The prominent European business angel investors Javier Pérez-Tenessa (founder of online travel agency eDreams), Michael van Swaaij (former CEO of Skype) and others have invested in travel shopping club HipClub.ru.
Launched in 2010, HipClub.ru offers “private sales” of discounted tours and hotel stays in Russia and abroad to its registered members. HipClub.ru was founded by the same guys who launched travel site HipWay.ru in 2009.
It’s not the first deal that the European internet angel investors scouted in Russia. In May 2009, a group of angel investors backed online shopping mall Wikimart.ru that then raised new funding from Tigel Global.
