Next Matter, a Berlin-based start-up, has raised US$16 million (approximately €15.3 million) in fresh capital in a Series A funding round. The investor round was led by OMERS Ventures, which was advised by a Taylor Wessing team under the leadership of Berlin-based partner and VC expert Norman Röchert on all legal issues related to the round.
In addition to OMERS Ventures, previous backers BlueYard Capital and Crane Venture Partners also invested again in Next Matter's automation software, which combines workflow, integration and task management of business processes in one platform. So far, primarily financial service providers, insurers and e-commerce companies have used Next Matter's software solutions, which intends to significantly expand its staff in Europe and the US with the new capital raised.
