Deutsche Telekom invests in video startup

Deutsche Telekom has made its fifth startup investment via its investment vehicle ‘Hub:raum’, investing half a million Euros in Amsterdam-based firm Vigour, which has built a platform that enables unified video experiences on any device.

Vigour was founded in 2012 and currently counts a small team of five split between Berlin and Amsterdam, who have jointly developed a platform that enables applications to run on any device, converging their interfaces into one fluid experience over the cloud.

Peter Borchers, founder and head of hub:raum, said: “We have seen the team of Vigour at the closing event of Startup Bootcamp in Berlin. They convinced us straightaway and we decided to offer them support by hub:raum.”

The seed investment round also involved Linden Mobile Ventures, a technology investor from the Netherlands, and a smaller participation by German technology company DG-i, based in Cologne.
