    Berlin startup stylemarks, which is building a mobile marketplace for vintage fashion and design products with the same name, has raised a “mid-level 6-digit” funding round (note to German startups and investors: please, bitte, por favor: quit it with the vagueness already).

    The capital injection comes from Venista Ventures and Familiy´s Venture Capital, and also participating in the round is Deutsche Telekom-incubated startup incubator hub:raum. Stylemarks is a graduate of the latter’s 8-week acceleration program.

    Oliver Bronner, CEO of Stylemarks, is giddy about the news:

    “We´re really happy to have Venista Ventures, Family´s Venture Capital team around Max Thyssen and hub:raum on board. They will not only support us monetarily, but also strategically.”

    Additionally, Alexander Jahn (former VP of Digital at Media Bertelsmann) and Tech Open Air Berlin initiator Nikolas Woischnik have joined the startup as advisors.

    Stylemarks plans to launch its iOS app in March.
