FCF Fox Corporate Finance GmbH advised German Bionic on a venture debt financing

Munich, January 24, 2023 – The European Investment Bank (EIB) has invested EUR 15 million in the form of a venture debt loan in the further development of AI-based human-machine systems by the German high-tech company German Bionic. Among others in the process, German Bionic was advised by FCF Fox Corporate Finance GmbH.

German Bionic is the leading provider of active and intelligent exoskeleton systems. The Cray X and the Apogee, recently unveiled at CES in Las Vegas, are the world’s first AI-based and fully connected work power suits that self-learn to reinforce lifting movements and prevent poor posture.

The exoskeletons provide real-time ergonomic data from the workday to protect employees’ health and measurably reduce the risk of accidents, while improving workflows. The EIB’s venture debt loan will go towards research and development at German Bionic (www.germanbionic.com).
