LUTZ | ABEL advises Solvemate on financing in the millions

19. Novem­ber 2018

Berlin — The Berlin-based startup Solvemate has raised a seven-figure sum as part of a growth finan­cing. The finan­cing round was led by venture capi­ta­lists Picea Capi­tal and Venture Stars.

Solvemate offers a virtual assistant to auto­mate custo­mer service in compa­nies. In the coming year, Solvemate plans to drive its growth and triple its reve­nue. Speci­fi­cally, the money from the finan­cing round is to be used for further tech­no­lo­gi­cal deve­lo­p­ment and to expand marketing.

Solvemate also plans to incre­asingly acquire custo­mers from the Euro­pean region, focu­sing prima­rily on the DACH region. Solvemate is also inves­t­ing the new capi­tal in the algo­rithm and new marke­ting acti­vi­ties. The company, foun­ded in Berlin in 2015, had alre­ady recei­ved funding from Venture Stars in the past. The rene­wed finan­cial support thus demons­tra­tes Venture Stars’ satis­fac­tion with Solvemate’s deve­lo­p­ment. Picea Capi­tal from Hamburg, on the other hand, is a new inves­tor. — Venture capi­ta­lists Picea Capi­tal and Venture Stars are inves­t­ing the sum to acce­le­rate the growth of the startup, which was foun­ded in 2015.

The money is to be used for the further deve­lo­p­ment of the tech­no­logy — but above all for marke­ting, in order to make Solvemate better known in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
