August Debouzy advised Sodexo, the world leader in quality of life services, in its investment in Gymlib, which offers companies access passes to sports gyms for their employees and supports HR departments on employee well-being.
After raising one million euro in 2015 and 3 million euro in 2017, the start-up raised an additional 10 million euro from Sodexo and its historical investors Alyan Group, Breega Capital and Fa Dièse.
This new fundraising should enable the start-up to accelerate its development and expand internationally.
In addition, Sodexo will enlarge its innovative offer in the wellness, life-balancing and nutrition segments by offering Gymlib services to its clients, thereby facilitating employee access to physical activity and sports.
