bentekk Receives Six-Figure Seed Funding Round

bentekk_logobentekk GmbH, a Hamburg, Germany-based manufacturer of measurement instruments for toxic industrial gases, received a six-figure seed funding round.

Backers included High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) and the Innovationsstarter Fonds Hamburg (IFH).

The company will use the funds to market its gas measurement technology in German-speaking countries and to develop a second product version for use in explosive atmospheres.

Co-founded by Matthias Schmittmann and Johannes Weber as a spin-off of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) and the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management, bentekk develops a handheld X-PID which allows selective measurements of carcinogenic organic compounds as benzene to increase safety at work in the oil, gas and chemical industry during shutdowns and turnarounds.
