Expon Capital, a Luxembourg based Venture Capital, led the fundraising through the Digital Tech Fund, a Luxembourg joint public-private fund. The round has been co-subscribed by Seeder Fund, the Belgium based venture capital, and Business Angels from Yeast and Be Angels networks.

Davide Martucci, Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are proud to share that we successfully closed our Seed Round of fundraising. We are delighted to welcome some big names of the Benelux VC and business angels' networks. We are excited about the funding partnerships we've accomplished and the value those investors bring to the company and to our clients. We share with both Expon Capital and Seeder Fund teams the same mindset regarding innovation, and long-term partnership. They provide the necessary strength to our company to roll out in Luxembourg and across Europe and continuously enhance our solution."

Marc Gendebien, of Expon Capital, said: "From the first time we met Next Gate Tech, we saw their solution as a leap forward for the fund industry. We were impressed by how powerful it is. It perfects and automates the data flow of the fund management industry to ensure the accuracy of vital tasks in fund oversight. This advance for the industry is a time warp for daily tasks, bypassing long-lead times on quarterly and annual reporting. The overwhelming feedback from existing and prospective customers proved to us that Next Gate Tech's solutions are a "must-have" for the fund industry. There is no way back. CEO Davide Martucci and his team speak the language of fund oversight and came directly from years of experience as fund managers."

David Van Tieghem of the Seeder Fund said: "We appreciated the genesis of Next Gate Tech, which developed its solution to initially respond to its own need of private fund manager, before realizing that there was a market opportunity."
