Replique, Mannheim, Germany, has announced the extension of its seed funding round. This follows on from its original May 2023 funding round. Lead investor STS Ventures, along with all other investors, have reportedly increased their financing in Replique.

“We’re very optimistic about Replique’s future,” Stephan Schubert from STS Ventures commented. “The strong customer growth and continuous platform extension both by function and region demonstrate the team’s commitment and the value they bring to customers. The company converted numerous proof-of-concept projects successfully to serial applications with their customers.”

Markus Bold, Managing Director from Chemovator, the business incubator and early-stage investor of BASF where Replique’s journey began, expresses his excitement: “Seeing the progress of our portfolio company Replique is truly remarkable. The commitment and support from the existing investors are invaluable contributors to this success.”
