Aleph Alpha raises more than $500 million in Series B financing round


German AI company Aleph Alpha has secured more than $500 million in Series B funding from a consortium of seven new and existing investors.

The investors include Innovation Park Artificial Intelligence (Ipai), Bosch Ventures, the Schwarz Group, Berlin-based Christ&Company Consulting, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, SAP and Burda Principal Investments.

The funding will help Aleph Alpha strengthen its position as a provider of generative AI applications in Europe and accelerate product development and scaling.

Aleph Alpha provides AI solutions for enterprises and governments, focusing on explainable and trustworthy approaches to generative AI. According to the company, the funds will be invested in foundational model research, advanced product features for mission-critical environments, and commercialization with select partners.



Jonas Andrulis, CEO and founder of Aleph Alpha, sees his company as the best option for customers in sensitive domains and strategic environments where sovereignty is key.

Strengthening research relationships

The investments will also help build important academic collaborations and further drive the reproducibility and sharing of innovation through open source.

The companies involved see great potential in working with Aleph Alpha. Rolf Schumann, Co-CEO of Schwarz Digits, sees Aleph Alpha’s technology as an opportunity to further optimize the digital services of the Schwarz Group and its external customers.

Dr. Tanja Rückert, Member of the Board of Management and Chief Digital Officer of Robert Bosch GmbH, emphasizes the importance of the active further development of generative AI for Europe’s technological sovereignty.

Other European AI start-ups with a focus on generative AI models are Nyonic from Berlin and Mistral from Paris, both of which Aleph Alpha has out-funded with the new investment.
