Creathor Ventures Newsletter

Q3 - 2019
Dear <<First Name>>,

Autumn is here, and so is our quarterly newsletter to provide you with a good read on a cozy fall day.
 
We are glad to share with you the news of the trade sale of our portfolio company bitbar. They have teamed up with US-based software test automation specialist SmartBear. Congratulations and all the best wishes to Marko, Jouku and the whole bitbar team.
 
Remember the hot investment we teased in our last newsletter? It is time to reveal the secret and officially welcome Tacalyx to our family! Tacalyx is a Berlin-based biotech company focused on the discovery and development of novel anti-TACA (Tumor Associated Carbohydrate Antigens) cancer therapies. To get know the startup and its CEO, read the interview with Dr. Martin Sondermann on our blog
 
Some highlights of this summer include the 6 million EUR Series A of lengoo and the appointment of their CEO Christopher Kränzler as a member of the board of directors of Bitkom. Furthermore, Blueprint Genetics found a new partner with ARCHIMEDlife, HeyJobs was named again one of the LinkedIn Top Startups to work for in Germany, and R3 Coms has been chosen as one of the finalists of the EIT Digital Challenge!
 
For all PR enthusiasts: Make sure to read our communication manager Thomas' report "The state of PR in DACH VC" on how public relations and communications activities are used by different VCs in our focus region.

Last but not least, together with Ledgy, we'll host a session TODAY about term sheet negotiation during Startup Safari FrankfurtRheinMain. Come join us! If you still need a ticket and want a discount, use our exclusive discount code below!
 
Wishing you a warm and cozy fall!

Sincerely,

Your Creathor Team
