Vinge has advised the pet insurance company Lassie AB in connection with a SEK 115 million financing round for the purpose of expanding the business internationally and developing the company’s app.

Lassie AB, whose business model incentivises the users to reduce their insurance costs by gaining points through preventive veterinary care, was founded by Hedda Båverud Olsson, Johan Jönsson and Sophie Wilkinson and the company has grown rapidly since its first financing round less than a year ago.

The financing round was led by the British venture capital firm, Felix Capital, and involved several current investors, among others, the institutional investors Inventure and Passion Capital as well as H&M’s chairman of the board, Karl-Johan Person, and Voi’s founder and head of marketing, Fredrik and Caroline Hjelm.

Vinge’s team consisted of Filip Öhrner, Maria Dahlin Kolvik and Viktor Lennartsson.

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.
