In doing this, semgine GmbH is already preparing itself for Web 3.0, the core of which will be semantic indexes.

"The creative and technological potential of semgine GmbH is extremely persuasive, so we are happy to support the development of innovative solutions which will secure the company’s competitive advantage and thus its continued growth," comments Lars Michalak, director of shareholder VC Fonds Berlin GmbH, on the capital increase.
"With the increasing glut of data in the world of science, but also on the Internet, there is an urgent need for intelligent search solutions which will enable information to be found quickly, simply and accurately. With its launch last week of semgine sciPlorer®, semgine GmbH has introduced a convincing solution to the market and added yet more strings to its bow," adds Professor Jochen Tschunke from EquityPlus GmbH.
