Swiss edtech startup Alphacruncher raises €1.45m for global rollout of research cloud workspace product
Swiss edtech startup Alphacruncher has raised €1.45 million funding from Austrian venture capital firm Alpine Equity, NGM, private investors and existing users, to enable the global rollout of its education and research cloud workspace product, Nuvolos.
Built to be usable and accessible, this unique workspace product now requires experts to help market it around the world. Alpine Group leads this new financial injection. Nuvolos can reach its full potential with their support by expanding its team. The two founders plan to kick-start and expand sales and marketing teams and invest in people to help Nuvolos reach more research teams and institutions, which will lead to more successful projects while cutting costs.
Nuvolos is set to be a major player in the Edtech space. It has been carefully designed and built to bridge the gap between abstract concepts and everyday life, enabling teachers and students to use actual data and hands-on experience. With Nuvolos, students engage, collaborate and interact in secure, browser-based scalable workspaces to build the skills they’ll need for the future, including coding, problem solving, creativity, and teamwork.
Alexandru Popescu, Co-founder and CEO of Alphacruncher: ''Our core objective is to boost scientific research and education by integrating cutting edge advances in computation, data and cloud technologies. By doing this, people can focus on their area of research expertise, students can learn in more engaging ways, and facilities can ultimately save resources.''
Nuvolos has been designed and engineered by academics for academics. What has been created is a one of a kind research workspace that gives scientific researchers access to storage and cloud computing power never possible before. This means researchers can at last collaborate and work on scientific discovery in a secure and scalable, powerful workspace, no matter where they are.
Harald Pöttinger, Managing Partner, Alpine Group: ''CEO Alexandru Popescu has gathered a brilliant team around him, and we want to see this team develop and the product to succeed - because we know it can.''
