We have advised Simplicity startup (under PERRY SOFT a.s.) in a $8.5M seed investment round. Simplicity, a smart communication city-to-residents communication platform, focuses on fighting against misinformation and hoaxes in support of local government. Simplicity works as a platform which in real time collects and delivers important information from municipalities to citizens. This seed investment round was backed by Venture to Future, Zero Gravity Capital and Angel Syndicate. Considering the value of this investment round, it belongs among the biggest seed investment rounds executed in Slovakia ever. This transaction drew on the expertise offered by our law firm’s start-up/venture capital fund experts.
I am happy for TW support and their hard work. We really like to work with partners with same values and mindset towards getting things done. During the process, team around Andrej Leontiev went an extra mile, they delivered and helped Simplicity move really fast.”

It was very inspiring working with our client and its founders on this assignment. Having a chance to work with one of the brightest young entrepreneurs who are putting ideas to work provides another incentive to go even one step further and deliver high quality legal service. Alignment of the expectations of new investors with already existing ones, while protecting the founders’ interests, is always a challenging task and closing such investment rounds is a success enabling further innovations, expansions and growth.”
