Growth case

Based on its unique technology platform and well-established market position in the Netherlands with many long-lasting customer partnerships, CycloMedia has doubled its sales over the last 4 years. CycloMedia has achieved strong organic expansion in the US, where revenue has doubled annually in the last 2 years, and in Germany, starting and scaling local operations successfully. CycloMedia has further invested in its world-leading technology platform, accelerating the scalability of the company by renewing its end-user Content-as-a-Service platform, introducing geo-referenced object databases using object recognition and AI analytics, and developing a next generation of capturing systems. On the back of the investments in R&D and sales, CycloMedia’s customer base has been expanding continuously with important customers like New York City, Washington DC, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Frankfurt and Stuttgart, as well as enterprise customers. The company was successfully sold to Volpi Capital, a European growth investor, based in London UK, who will further invest in the international growth.
