Cannonball®, an owner-managed investment office, has further strengthened its commitment to Deep Neuron Lab (DNL) in its latest financing round. Partners and advisory board members of Cannonball® are experienced entrepreneurs and investment experts. Cannonball® has been DNL's lead investor since the seed round was closed in 2021.
DNL went live with its platform's first product – the Notes Auditor - in early 2022, and renowned auditing firms are already using the Notes Auditor to audit financial reports. The additional funding will enable DNL to further develop and scale the software platform. This will make the solution available to customers such as financial institutions, insurance companies, investors and other financial service providers in the future. The processing and auditing of ESG data and sustainability
reports are a clear focus.
"We are particularly pleased with the closing of our latest financing round, as we can now put even more energy into the further development of our technology. The additional liquidity as well as the support of our investors will help us to make DNL the leading provider for financial report processing. We already support renowned auditing firms with our AI-based software. By expanding our platform, we are offering the opportunity to use AI in the processing and structuring of financial data to a wider range of players in the financial industry. By doing so, we are helping to eliminate operational risks, improve documentation quality and boost efficiency in critical processes. In an increasingly challenging economic environment, we are creating significant value for the financial industry." says Andreas Schindler, DNL CEO and Co-Founder.
"I am very proud of the performance and passion our team has shown over the past 18 months. This has allowed us to develop the first products of our platform to market maturity. Our products work with sensitive data and are used in critical processes. For this reason, we have particularly focused on the security of our platform in recent months. We are now not only able to meet our customers' requirements in this area, but to exceed them." reports Iason Georgakopoulos, CTO and Co-Founder of DNL.
Dominik F. Hesse, Managing Partner of Cannonball®, stated, "We are excited about Deep Neuron Lab’s progress. Their focus on building a sustainable and profitable business model with an impressive customer list is absolutely compelling. Thus, strengthening our commitment as an active shareholder was an obvious choice. We believe that through our contribution we can add value to the team; we provide it with our network, knowledge and experience in supporting growth companies. Although we typically invest at a later stage, Andreas’ and Iason's exceptional track record made this an opportunity we did not want to miss."
