Faruk Tuncer: “I am thrilled to have the support of HV Capital as we continue to revolutionize the way governments make decisions based on data. Governments worldwide invest and spend trillions on their services. In the Euro Zone alone, half of GDP is directly or indirectly generated by government expenditures. Equally public sector institutions are under high digitization pressure by more than one third of their workforce retiring until 2030. Polyteia’s platform will be crucial in empowering them in their capabilities of solving 21st century challenges with better data against the backdrop of these trends. This new funding will allow us to further develop our data platform and bring it to many more governments in DACH and beyond.”
Said Haschemi, Investment Manager at HV Capital, said, “HV is excited to partner up with Polyteia to serve the public sector’s massively growing need for scalable software solutions. Governments must manually navigate through a flood of data to make the right decision – a process that is timely and too often error prone. With Polyteia, decision makers in the public sector finally have access to the right data with a click of a button. HV is looking forward to working with Faruk and the team to help the company to build the first government SaaS category leader in Europe.”
Duc Quyen Tran, Partner at DvH Ventures: “We are pleased to continue supporting Polyteia and are highly confident in the company’s ability to revolutionize the GovTech industry. We look forward to seeing the impact of the company’s platform on governments and citizens alike in this next phase of acceleration.”
