Redalpine leads Morressier’s Seed round


Morressier co-founders Sami Benchekroun and Justus Weweler    


We are delighted to support Morressier in their vision to unlock the value and to reshape the exchange of early scientific findings. The Berlin-based startup just announced their EUR 1.5m Seed round led by Redalpine.


Morressier offers the first comprehensive solution that takes academic conferences into the digital realm. Morressier’s current SaaS platform allows organizers to manage posters and presentations digitally and gain extensive analytics on leading topics, attendee interests and developing scientific trends in a very easy and simple way. Researchers use the platform to upload and organize their contributions, obtain data-driven insights into the popularity of their work and discover related research projects and potential collaborators.


The platform is already being used by over 250 academic conferences and associations including the International Diabetes Federation and World Psychiatric Association to organize conference material from more than 80,000 researchers and facilitate over one million interactions with scientific content.


The funding round was complemented by high profile business angels and experts in the field of scholarly publishing, including Jan Reichelt, cofounder of academic network Mendeley, and Jan Maier, cofounder of research management tool AVEDAS. The freshly raised capital will be used to develop new features for the conference platform and to develop additional technology to analyze and structure early-stage scientific content.


Morressier CEO Sami Benchekroun stated: “We are very excited to bring a group of investors and angels with deep industry know-how on board. Together, we’re building a platform that will forge a new path forward in scholarly publishing, starting with the transformation of the outdated academic conference system.”


Our partner Harald Nieder summarizes: “We are convinced by Morressier’s vision to organize scientific content, both mature and preliminary, in a way that benefits the entire research community. The founders’ early success in the area of academic conferences is a solid foundation to create a long-lasting impact in scientific research, collaboration and publishing.”


We are happy to welcome Morressier on board and are excited to work with the team.
