Follow-up investment: Digital wound care with WUNDERA®: additional capital for sciendis GmbH from Leipzig


17 November 2022

The team led by the two founders, Dr Michael Aleithe and Dr Philipp Skowron, has once again convinced investors: TGFS Technologiegründerfonds Sachsen and adesso ventures are investing a seven-figure amount in sciendis GmbH from Leipzig. The healthcare start-up provides the digital solution WUNDERA® for the management and documentation of wound care. This relieves nursing staff in the treatment of chronic wounds. 

The TGFS, founding financier for technology-oriented start-ups in Saxony, first participated in sciendis through a pre-seed investment in 2020 and expanded its commitment after a successful market launch last year. In addition to TGFS, Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft Sachsen mbH is also involved in the company through the Corona Start-up-Hilfsfonds (CSH) managed by them. In the current round, adesso ventures, the incubator of the IT service provider adesso SE based in Dortmund, is also investing in sciendis alongside TGFS. 

sciendis GmbH offers WUNDERA®, a mobile application that enables easy-to-use management with AI-based documentation of chronic wounds in healthcare. In addition to outpatient care services, stationary providers, homecare companies, medical supply stores and care centres are now adopting WUNDERA® to optimise their processes. 

  „We have achieved a lot since the last funding round in 2021. We have progressed technologically and have been able to tap into additional customer segments,“ reflects Dr Michael Aleithe, founder of sciendis, and adds: „The current round reflects the confidence of our existing investor, TGFS, with whom we have collaborated trustingly in the past. With adesso ventures, we can now expand the circle to include an investor who not only provides capital but also supports us with expertise and a network.“ 

Sören Schuster, Managing Director of TGFS, on the current funding: „The founding team has proven itself over the past two years: Despite the challenges posed by the Corona crisis and the resulting difficulty in accessing care facilities, customers and, in particular, partners have been gained. We are pleased to welcome adesso ventures on board as a another investor, as with their expertise and network will accelerate the software’s development even moreeffectively.“ 

Malte Unger, Managing Director of adesso ventures: „The team led by Michael and Philipp convinced us straight away: a value-adding use case in the healthcare sector combined with a sophisticated technological endeavor. At this juncture, adesso can fully leverage its strengths to contribute to the realisation of WUNDERA: a robust customer network on one side and technological expertise on the other.“
