Prediki Prediction Services Closes $650K Seed Financing
Prediki Prediction Services GmbH, an Austrian startup that is building a platform for collaborative predictions and analysis for future questions of all kinds, has closed a $650K (approximately €500K) seed financing round.
The funds were provided by Austria’s Federal Promotion Bank, Austria Wirtschaftsservice GmbH (AWS), which is funded by the Ministry of Economics’ JITU initiative.
Led by Hubertus Hofkirchner, CEO, Prediki is currently operating in stealth mode, and is accessible to selected customers and contributors on an invitation-only basis.
The company intends to use the capital to complete the platform’s functionality, for predictive calibrations, and to drive initial traction of its English and German language versions. The public launch of Prediki is scheduled for the first quarter of 2013.
