High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) has become a lead investor in KeyRocket (Veodin Software GmbH). The financing round enables the international distribution of KeyRocket as well as expansion of the team to accelerate product development for additional applications and platforms.
HTGF is convinced of KeyRocket’s potential to disrupt how office workers worldwide work with software. HTGF’s investment as an institutional investor emphasizes the highly innovative character of KeyRocket. Michael Brehm, who is known for his own startup successes (VZ, Rebate Networks, DailyDeal and Brands4Friends) is another shareholder and strong supporter of KeyRocket.
Jan Sessenhausen, investment manager at HTGF about the reasons for the seed investment: ‘We see the high customer value from productivity gains in daily use of standard software and therefore the large sales international potential. The technology and the concept can be adapted to many other software platforms and applications.’
‘The combination of HTGF and Michael Brehm as our partners is ideal’ says Jan Mechtel, founder of KeyRocket ‘HTGF is highly professional and financially strong. At the same time we get valuable help with strategic and operative issues from Michael Brehm and Jan Sessenhausen’.
“With the support of those two high caliber investors and after the launch of KeyRocket 1.0, the company can now focus on worldwide distribution and continue development. KeyRocket supports the Microsoft Office application – Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. With over 1,600 shortcuts KeyRocket covers the needs of most office workers. In the coming month the product will be available for other standard software.
