Berlin, Germany. May 27, 2024 – Narratic Labs, a Berlin-based AI startup, proudly announces the successful completion of their €750K pre-seed funding round.

Leading this funding round was xdeck, a Cologne-based early-stage Venture Capital fund specializing in B2B software solutions. The round also saw participation from esteemed Angel Investors, including Nicole Becker (Board Member at The Platform Group), Lothar Harings (former Board Member at Kuehne + Nagel), and several founders and operators from global B2B innovators.

The capital injection will be used to expand Narratic Labs' team and facilitate the launch of their self-service platform, allowing gradual access expansion to more users. This follows the successful validation of their core value proposition with a dedicated group of early access customers.

Narratic Labs addresses two significant challenges in the B2B sales sector: identifying and researching optimal partners for companies. Initially focusing on B2B interactions, the startup envisions broad applications, including personal and scientific research.

Leveraging cutting-edge technology, Narratic Labs is constructing an extensive business database and training proprietary AI models to comprehend companies at a granular level. These models enable natural language searches, efficiently identifying suitable partners across millions of data points.

To surpass the capabilities of standard language models, Narratic Labs has developed an array of AI models that continually improve through expanding databases and user feedback, ensuring optimal customer service.

Since its private launch, Narratic Labs has welcomed a select group of early access users to its platform. Although access remains limited, the company is accelerating the onboarding process for its waitlist, which includes both established and emerging B2B sales organizations worldwide.

Arne Wolfewicz, Co-Founder and CEO at Narratic Labs comments:

After conducting hundreds of user interviews, we've identified significant gaps in the company data market. xdeck specializes in enabling B2B-focused teams, so getting access to their expertise and network helps us accelerate both our product development and go-to-market.

Hagen Hoferichter, Co-Founder and CTO at Narratic Labs, comments:

Our data helps customers make critical business decisions, and the collaboration with xdeck enables us put full focus on continually refining our product. We aim to be at the edge of technology to minimize human labor without compromising quality.

Markus Gick, Managing Partner at xdeck comments:

We at xdeck are thrilled to support Narratic on their journey as one of the first believers. Narratic are building a powerful data product with several million data points, which they now make accessible through an intuitive and AI-first user interface.
