Omi, a Paris, France-based provider of a SaaS software platform for modelling and rendering 3D photo and video for brands, raised €6m in Seed funding.
The round was led by Dawn Capital, with participation from a range of angel investors including Founders Future’s Marc Ménasé who led the previous round, Zenly cofounder Alexis Bonillo, Deezer founder Daniel Marhely and Voodoo cofounder Laurent Ritter, as well as Pareto Holdings, Financière Saint James (Veepee.com’s cofounder family office), Motier Ventures (Galeries Lafayette family office) and Famille C Venture (Clarins family office).
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the development of its R&D, recruit new talent, and deploy its international presence, with a focus on Southern Europe and the UK in particular, but in time extending beyond Europe to the United States.
Led by Hugo Borensztein and Paul Borensztein, Omi provides a photo-realistic 3D technology platform that empowers brands and marketers to virtualize their products and create photos and videos of their products in minutes, with no skills and at low cost.
The proprietary technology already has more than 200 references – from start-ups to international brands including Nestle and Manucurist- as well as strategic partnerships like the one with Meta.
