Next Matter Raises $16M in Series A Funding


Next Matter, a Berlin, Germany-based provider of an end-to-end operations automation and orchestration platform, raised $16M in Series A funding.

The round was led by Omers Ventures with participation from previous investors BlueYard Capital and Crane Venture Partners as well as a number of high-profile angels including Raisin founders Frank Freund and Tamaz Georgadze, HeyJobs founder Marius Luther and Charles Songhurst.

The company intends to use the funds to expand its fully remote team from 15 to 75 with a particular focus on the US, where a third of its customers are now based. 

Founded in 2018 by Jan Hugenroth, Next Matter empowers organizations and people to do their best work every day by providing a cloud based automation and orchestration platform for operations tailored to a business’s unique operations needs. Customers include insuretech giant wefox, European online broker Trade Republic and US ecommerce player Spreetail.

Where legacy companies like Salesforce or SAP work to optimise a company’s sales or finance departments, Next Matter orchestrates critical workflow across all departments to provide an operating system connecting a business’s operations across departments. By integrating with a company’s existing tech stack, such as HubSpot, Slack, and Zapier, Next Matter is able to seamlessly link employees and their tools together no matter their role in the company. The platform’s drag-and-drop interface allows users to automate and orchestrate any scenario imaginable, either from scratch or based on Next Matter’s extensive library of best practice operations templates.
