Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Vogl, founder and managing director of BLACKBOX Solutions:

In the run-up to the round, the BayStartUP team provided us with ideal support and helped convince a private investor from the BayStartUP investor network of our solution. With HTGF in the lead, a powerful financing consortium was then formed together with Bayern Kapital and the private investor.

Tobias Rüdiger, Head of Operations & Finance at Spleenlab:

With bmt, Apex Ventures and Dr. Carlo Velten, we are pleased to have three investors on board who not only have a broad network but also a lot of experience with young technology companies. This would not have been possible without the support of BayStartUP.
