1. Fourvenues invoices €35M in 2022 and obtains €6.5M investment🕺🏼.

To understand the business in figures: they have closed 2022 with a turnover of €35M and a workforce of almost 90 employees and a presence in 5 countries and 300 clients. In 4 years🧨.

The numbers are the result of offering management software for nightlife businesses, events, restaurants and beach clubs🥳. Its value proposition: an all-in-one to manage from reservations, tickets, bookings or CRM (among others) to this type of negocio🛎️.

Until now, this company profile had been attacked (and more than intensely) in terms of ticket sales, admission list management and reservations😎. It was a very 2010s business. The differentiation in this case: they have gone to a high level of professionalisation aimed at companies with a team dedicated to managing with profitability and business criteria👔, even if they are in the leisure sector. In other words, they have moved on from night-time beach bars👔 and have gone for the players profesionalizados👩🏻‍💼. Good visto👌🏼.

The €6.5m investment is led by the Base 10 fund in Silicon Valley (USA🇺🇸) and other funds such as ZBG, FJ Labs, Angels and the founders of Jobandtalent.

Now their sights are set on growing in Europe 🇪🇺 and with product innovations, integrating a solution that allows 💳 payments within the platform.

2. OnlyFans reaches 3 million content creators on mundo❤️‍🔥.

Subscription-based adult content platform OnlyFans has shared figures for content creators. And they are mareantes😵‍💫. In the words of its CEO, the platform claims to have a total of 3 million content creators dentro🤳🏼, which is a 40% growth🆙. In terms of markets, the expansion in content creation in Latin America and Australia stands out.

With a turnover of close to 1,000M$🪐 in 2022, OnlyFans is a controversial platform to say the least. Although the creation of adult content is a free activity, the uberisation of sexual content is normalising an activity that previously was not 🤷🏻‍♀️ and was nurtured purely by professionals in the sector💋.

How does this affect the younger generations, especially them? The debate is always on the table, there are those who defend that it empowers them 💪🏼 (they are mostly women) and there are those who point out that it is putting easy money 💸 at their fingertips despite having ventipocos👱🏼‍♀️. Some say that Onlyfans, by keeping 20% of the revenue, is a digital pimp🤢. There are also those who claim that in this way, the exchange is safer than in person🔒.

Of course, more and more people are saying "in the end I'll become an onlyfans😉" where before they used to say "I'd have to win the lottery"🎟️.

👉🏻 Here is the note with the CEO's statements at the WebSummit in Rio de Janeiro Janeiro👩🏻‍💼.

👉🏻 Here to read when OnlyFans banned sexually explicit content (now the bulk of its content). Trump 👱🏽‍♂️ and credit cards 💳 had a lot to do😦.

👉🏻 Is it true that Onlyfans exclusive to pies🦶🏼 content exists? Yes. There is more than one🧐. Read it here.

3. Nory: Horeca + AI (the combination you didn't see coming) gets 7M€ of investment🍔🤖.

Nory is a platform that offers an AI solution applied to hospitality businesses such as restaurants, caterings, bars or hotels🍸.

Its value proposition is to offer operational improvements 🤓 in this type of business to optimise both revenue and workflow efficiency💼.

Nory offers real-time performance reporting and improvement suggestions across multiple locations. The product is based on 3 fronts: inventory🥐, resources humanos🧑🏻‍🍳 and profitability💲.

The company, of irlandés🇮🇪 origin, has raised 7M€ of investment and wants to focus on the Spanish market 🇪🇸 hand in hand with the large hotel chains operating in our country🏨.

In the umpteenth summer of the post-pandemic recovery, where we all travel, consume and spend in carpe diem🍾 mode (in case it happens again, may it catch me travelling😇), hotel companies continue with an increasingly digitalisation evidente👨🏻‍💼.

👉🏻 Here is the news about the €7M round for Nory (IA rules!🤖).

👉🏻 Here to take a look at their website and products.

👉🏻 If you are thinking of creating a SaaS for a consolidated sector, as is the case of Nory (whether or not with AI), it is an unbeatable moment 📆 to create and launch it. The adoption of technology for management and process control in companies is at its peak and the profiles that decide to hire 🤔 or not a SaaS, more receptive than nunca👍🏼.

4. From one startup comes another startup. And Cabify is one mina👩🏻‍🏫.

Cabify was the first Spanish unicorn🦄**.** It will always be accompanied by such an honourable title. But not only that. Just as they say that from one wedding comes another boda👰🏻‍♀️, it is common for **startups to be catalysts 🧪 of talent that, after a time dedicated to the project, decide to create their own proyecto🚶🏻‍♀️. **In fact, they call it the multiplier effect 🔛 as it is not only what these companies contribute as such, but also what they **generate around them new companies founded by former employees trabajadores👋🏼. Endeavor has dedicated a whole Insight to them, analysing Cabify💜 alumni, as if it were a university or business school 🎓, and the projects they have launched. And they are not few: 80 former employees have founded almost 90 companies in 15 different countries. Long live the multiplicador👏🏼 effect.

5. Idle resources: find something free and put it on rendir⚡️.

There are companies that base their model on just this: they locate a resource (be it a person or a thing) and, in their model, they make them available to generate business**. This is the case of Uber🚙 drivers and cars in their day or airbnb🚪's temporarily empty homes.**Also smatlockers 🗃️ (smart lockers) in empty spaces in car parks or shopping centres. Even byhours, the website that allows you to book hotel rooms by the hour 🛌, of course, when the hotel is not full🛌.Parclick followed in that footsteps años🅿️ ago: they have been gathering the offer of car parks until reaching 270 European cities🏰, offering their availability in real time so that you can find, book and pay for your parking from the app🚗. They take 30% commission on all bookings and have 1,800 car parks on offer 😎 across Europe. Turnover was €10M in 2022 and they expect to grow to €12M in 2023💰.

👉🏻 Here is the news with the history and figures of Parclick 🅿️.
