Dear Reader,

Indonesian auto financing startup Broom issued shares worth $13.3 million last week to a group of investors.

The transaction comprises the allotment of Series A shares worth $8 million issued to Openspace Ventures and other investors, and seed shares to SAFE holders that backed its pre-seed round.

Broom had raised $3 million in pre-seed funding from AC Ventures, Quona Capital, and several angel investors, including the founders of Kopi Kenangan and Lummo, in February last year.

In conjunction with the new round, Broom has appointed its COO Claussen Sindhuwinata, Quona Capital partner Dan Bertoli, and Openspace Ventures executive director Ian Sikora to its board of directors.

Used car marketplace Carro received $3 million last week from Singapore-based insurance technology player ZA Tech. Its share price remains unchanged from its previous financing in 2022.

Carro had announced securing the investment from the insurtech company last month without disclosing the quantum.

The SoftBank-backed unicorn also added UAE-based classifieds player EMPG to its cap table last week in a move indicative of its acquisition of Thailand-based Kaidee.
