AX Sementrics raises medium seven-digit figure

Having started in 2009 in Stuttgart, AX Semantics is known for a robot that generates content, e.g. weather and sport news, traffic updates, product information or business reports. After a private investor financed a seven-digit amount back in 2014, the startup now announces a new round: German publishing houses NWZ Digital, PDV Inter-Media Venture and Müller Medien invested a medium seven-digit figure.
31 people are currently working in the three offices in Stuttgart, Berlin, and Chile.
