Conceptboard gets funded by High-Tech Gründerfonds and Seedfonds BW

Stuttgart - 30.01.2012

The Stuttgart based startup secures funding from the High-Tech Gründerfonds and the Seedfonds Baden-Württemberg. The innovative software as a service solution and a fast-growing market convinced the investors.

With its cloud software the Conceptboard team offers a new approach to online collaboration: Multiple users are able to work on documents and concepts on an online whiteboard – at the same time and from anywhere. High-Tech Gründerfonds and Seedfonds BW see the potential of these Conceptboards and secure the next development steps with their investment.

“Conceptboard addresses a central problem of our global society with its platform: The direct and efficient collaboration independent of location. We are convinced, that the motivated Conceptboard team will successfully establish its solution in the market.”, explains Roman Loch from the LBBW Venture Capital GmbH, which co-manages the Seedfonds BW.

So far Conceptboard is mostly being used by the creative industry and within educational institutions. In the future new user groups will be targeted through branch-specific enhancements.

“We are excited about the investment of the High-Tech Gründerfonds and the Seedfonds BW.”, says Daniel Bohn, CEO of Conceptboard, “With the capital we are able to further develop our product and to extend our team. In the long term we are planning to set up Conceptboard as an open platform and to co-operate with software and hardware suppliers.”
