Oculyze announced that it had secured a seven figure investment from Constantia New Business (CNB) GmbH headquartered in Vienna, Austria.

The funds will be utilized to support Oculyze’s plans to grow the current business exponentially, specifically supporting late-stage research and development of additional products in the Oculyze portfolio and further market expansion both within Germany and across the world.
Commenting on the latest development, Kilian Moser, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Oculyze said: “As we embark on a new year, I am delighted to announce that we have secured further funding through a new partnership with Austrian based CNB. This latest funding comes at a very exciting time for Oculyze as we seek to consolidate and sustain our position as the world’s premier platform for mobile image analysis.
During 2018, we strengthened our core team through the hiring of senior professionals, bringing in a wealth of experience and expertise crucial to the future growth of Oculyze. In addition, and after developing and enhancing our technology, we rolled out our flagship product – the Oculyze Better Brewing (BB) 2.0 as well as signed on a global distribution partner to extend our product to an even bigger audience across the world. During the last quarter of 2018, we launched our online store, automating and streamlining the entire purchase-to-fulfillment process within a safe and secure environment. All these developments have resulted in a steady increase in sales and a customer reach across 26 countries.
We take this opportunity to thank the team at CNB for their invaluable support and will continue to focus on creating greater value for all our stakeholders.”
