Today begins a new chapter for CANDIS. A partnership that secures continuous strong growth, allows us to invest heavily into product development and build the best team possible. We are proud to announce that Lightspeed Venture Partners has joined the family!
Lightspeed Venture Partners, along with existing investors Point Nine Capital, Speedinvest, Fly Ventures, main incubator of Commerzbank and 42CAP, have invested in our company in our Series A funding round.
Particularly noteworthy is that this investment is the first investment into a German startup by the famous Silicon Valley VC – a great signal not only for the startup scene in Berlin, but for the entire German tech ecosystem.
New board members with a lot of expertise
Along with this, we are pleased to welcome Tal Morgenstern from Lightspeed Venture Partners, Christoph Janz from Point Nine Capital and Andreas Schwarzenbrunner from Speedinvest to the advisory board. All of them are very experienced venture capital investors, who have worked with successful companies like Zendesk, Contentful or Testim.io to mention just a few.
The opportunity to work with one of the world’s best venture capital firms fills our entire team with pride and we are all thrilled to build the best possible team in order to build an incredible product for our users. Lightspeed has backed over 330+ entrepreneurs and their companies globally, with over 15 IPOs and acquisitions in the past ten years alone. These include Snap, AppDynamics, MuleSoft, Nest, and Affirm – companies that have redefined the way we live and work.
This unique expertise ensures that CANDIS continues to expand its market leadership in automated bookkeeping and allows us to hire the best people (yes, we are hiring – check out our positions) to make it happen.
Thanks to our customers – We will keep on pushing boundaries for you!
A big THANKS to all our customers who have kept trusting us through our imperfections and supported us with valuable feedback. We are motivated, passionate and we will give our best to make CANDIS better and better. Day by day. Promise.
