BlueYard invests in Wonder Technologies


Berlin – While working at SMP, members of the YPOG team advised venture capital firm BlueYard on its latest investment in Berlin-based software company Wonder Technologies. In addition to BlueYard, EQT Ventures invested in the web application for video conferencing as part of this Series A financing round. BlueYard received comprehensive legal advice. The team already advised the investor on a number of financing rounds, including its investments in Pitch, deepstreamHub and Marvel Fusion. In addition, BlueYard is advised on all aspects of fund formation and fund structuring - including digital assets. Ansgar Frank and Stephan Bank took the joint lead on this mandate.
"With their online conference platform, the founders of Wonder Technologies have recognized the needs of their "pandemic-ridden" target group at the right time and created a digital venue for them that enables GDPR-compliant exchange with different discussion partners in the same event space" says Ansgar Frank. "I am therefore particularly pleased that we were once again able to provide BlueYard with legal advice for this investment."


BlueYard is an early-stage investor headquartered in Berlin. The company was founded in 2016 by Ciarán O'Leary and Jason Whitmire. The portfolio's target companies are startups focused on decentralizing markets. The portfolio includes mostly seed- and Series A-stage software companies from Europe and the US.
