A team from Noerr led by Ariane Neubauer and Felix Blobel has advised Next Big Thing AG (NBT) on its pre-IPO funding. The Berlin-based venture studio specialising in the machine economy has successfully completed the first round of pre-IPO funding and raised five million euros in capital.
The lead investor is a family office located in Munich. The two existing investors, FinLab EOS VC Fund and GPS Ventures, are also involved in the first closing of the funding round. The financing round is to be completed in the coming weeks with additional investors.
