Degura, a Berlin, Germany-based fintech SaaS platform transforming pension plan solutions, secured €2.2 million in a seed funding round led by Swiss VC firm btov Partners.
In addition, prominent angel investors joined the round, including Dr. Patrick Dahmen, (former AXA and HDI Executive) and Dr. Gerhard Cromme, as well as logistics platform founders David Nothacker, Nicolaus Schefenacker, and Julius Köhler (sennder).
The funds will be used to expand its core team and further upscale its digital services.
“The process of setting up and managing Company Pensions is painstakingly complex and not geared toward the end customer at all. At a time when it is obvious that state pensions alone will not provide adequate for retirement – neither in Germany nor in the rest of Europe, we see an imminent need to help employees plan their financial future. That’s why we have built our product with the end customer in mind, helping ensure that citizens across Europe have access to company pension schemes as easily as possible. We’re beyond gratified to have such renowned investors on board to help us build the leading digital Company Pension platform in Europe,” says Christian Witte, CEO of Degura GmbH.
The European fintech company makes company pension plans simple and transparent. Degura's cloud-based software solution simplifies the discovery, offering, and management of employer pension plans (bAV).
Degura also offers its customers a wide range of consultation services regarding company pension plans in general.
