– BELGIUM, Aalst – CHILI publish, the Creative Automation software market leader, today announced it has raised €10 million in a new round of funding led by Connected Capital with participation from existing investors Group MC, Pamica, and PMV.
Concurrent with the financing, Geert van Engelen, Managing Partner at Connected Capital, will join the board of directors.
The new financing will be used to accelerate solution and community development, attract new talent, and boost the company’s go-to-market and sales operations in the United States and Europe.
“Consumers increasingly look for compelling visual content across touchpoints, as they navigate through online, social, and on-site marketplaces. Brands and agencies struggle to reach the right people with the right content on the right channel because all too often their design adaptation process takes time, is error-prone and not data-driven,” said CEO, Kevin Goeminne. “CHILI publisher lets brands and agencies simplify and automate on-brand graphic production at scale, saving them time and money in the end-to-end production of that content for both online and offline channels. This investment allows us to grow our solution, team, and community so every professional in any market can create and repurpose professional, on-brand visuals.”
“Creative tech is the rapidly evolving space to watch. Brands and agencies are striving to become more productive, adaptive, and scalable. CHILI publish delivers just that by empowering them with a powerful and tailored platform. It gives brands the control and the speed they need to rapidly react to consumer demand trends, both in-store and online,” said Geert van Engelen. “CHILI publish’s relationships with MarTech integration partners and creative service providers, their attention to data security with recent ISO 27001:2017 certification, and a result-focused, solution-driven team makes us excited to contribute to their accelerated expansion.”
