EUROPE: Rail, bus and air planning and booking platform developer GoEuro has closed a US$45m funding round, led by Goldman Sachs and joined by new investors including Atomico, Yuri Milner and Tom Stafford, Sebastian Siemiatkowski (Klarna) and Ilkka Paananen (Supercell).

‘GoEuro has made impressive progress in bringing the last untapped market within the travel industry into the 21st century’, said Christopher Dawe, Co-Head of Goldman Sachs IP Private Investments. ‘With over 50 000 railway and coach stations across Europe, yet no online solution to search and book travel in a similar manner to what already exists within the airline industry, we see a tremendous opportunity to fill the void by building the leading multi-modal travel platform.’
