Thanks to signals Venture Capital, a further capital injection is now to follow. The venture capital investor from Berlin has a start-up character itself and has only been in existence since 2017. Despite this short time, the company has already been able to raise a venture capital fund of around 100 million euros. signals acts independently, but can rely on the financial backing of the Signal Iduna Group, a leading German universal insurer. The investment focus of signals Ventures capital is on b2b business models with a European orientation – preferably in the areas of Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things. The Zenloop commitment fits in seamlessly with these models.
