Frankfurt/Main – Qualifyze, a Frankfurt-based digital start-up company, has received new capital of Euro 3.2 million in a further financing round for the further development of its certification platform in the healthcare sector. Lead investors in the financing include the investment companies Rheingau Founders and Cherry Ventures. In addition to other business angels, football player Mario Götze is also participating for the first time.
A CMS team from the firm’s Frankfurt office again advised Qualifyze on all legal aspects of the financing round. The team regularly advises start-ups and investors on fundraising, and assisted Qualifyze with previous financing rounds. The start-up is a member of equIP, CMS’s own start-up support programme. The aim of the CMS equIP programme is to support start-ups and young innovative companies in the digital and tech industry and enable them to become strong contenders for Series A financing. To achieve this, CMS provides firms with comprehensive legal advice while engaging with their entrepreneurial objectives.
Qualifyze, headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, provides a platform for supplier certification in the pharmaceutical sector. The aim is to create a digital network that links customers, suppliers, auditors, subcontractors and official bodies, enabling quality-related data to be exchanged continuously and securely. This requires a global pool of independent and accredited auditors who regularly audit suppliers worldwide, depending on requirements, and publish the results on a dedicated platform. Customers benefit from access to quality-related information at any time without having to carry out extensive audits themselves.
