German Autolabs closes €2 million round

Berlin-based German Autolabs started focusing on a digital co-pilot software just five months ago. Today the startup announced having raised a €2 million Seed Round. The investment comes from Target Partner and several business angels. The idea behind the startup’s software is to create a better working co-pilot than Apple’s Siri or the Google alternative. The software will also delay WhatsApp messages when a driver is in a stressful situation and even read emails aloud when the driver is stuck in traffic.
