CI HUB has been supported by the founding team and the team Media, ICT team of the WFBB since its pre-founding and participated in the MediaTech Hub Accelerator programme in 2019. In doing so, they were supported very intensively and sustainably on the journey to this considerable funding. A very great success for the fruitful networking of all partners in Potsdam - be it ILB, Potsdam Transfer and all others involved.

The Potsdam-based start-up CI HUB has already convinced numerous partners and now also investors with its software platform. In the course of the first round of financing, the company secures the necessary funds to further implement its strategy.

"CI HUB is a platform that enables companies to automate their marketing materials in the future, saving them time and money. It does this by integrating directly with all major marketing and office applications, making it extremely easy, fast and cost-effective to use."

Andreas Michalski | Co-founder and CEO CI HUB

The development of the marketing software product CI HUB, which will also be based on AI elements in the future, is very complex and resource-intensive. A large part of the investment will therefore be put into further product development and the expansion of the team.
