Morressier, a Berlin, Germany-based company facilitating access to early-stage scientific research, closed a $4.5m Series A funding.
The round was led by Cherry Ventures with participation from existing backer Redalpine.
The company intends to use the funds to expand the engineering team and to further focus on machine learning to uncover cross-disciplinary connections between various scientific content sources.
Led by Sami Benchekroun, co-founder and CEO, Morressier is a scientific publishing platform that captures, aggregates and organizes early scientific content, including posters, presentations and abstracts and creates insight at scale.
By unhiding, structuring and analyzing currently inaccessible preliminary scientific data, institutions, publishers, R&D-heavy companies and funding bodies can get access to early trends and indicators and the development of scientific results over time.
Researchers have already shared over 140’000 early findings in form of posters, presentations, videos, images and metadata on the platform. User adoption is broad, with contributors from all areas of the scientific ecosystem, including universities, scientific institutions and conferences.
