Robin Data among the TOP 100 startups

Company from Merseburg is one of the top 100 fastest growing start-ups in Germany

Berlin/Merseburg, 10.07.2020 In June 2020, Robin Data GmbH made it into the top 100 of the fastest growing start-ups in Germany. Despite corona, despite being located outside the usual startup areas. The reason why the investors, despite the difficult economic situation caused by Corona, again invested a high amount of money in the start-up from Merseburg is due to an innovative business idea, which approaches the topic of data protection in a completely new way.

Place 65 for the Merseburg-based

Every month the business insiders select the top 100 of the fastest growing start-ups in Germany. In June 2020, 16,000 start-ups were examined, Robin Data GmbH made it to 65th place. The ranking includes promising newcomers and technology-savvy, scalable business models, which are considered an insider tip for professional investors. The growth factors examined include new hires and financing, but also website visits or social media follower figures. Since its foundation in 2018, Robin Data GmbH has received two financing rounds and high investment sums. This is remarkable when you consider that the company is not located in the usual start-up cities such as Berlin or Munich, but in Merseburg, which has a population of 36,000.

Merseburg as a startup incubator?

Merseburg near Halle (Saale) is rather less known for the fact that many start-ups settle down to mature. Yet the location is certainly suitable for young companies. Close to the Merseburg University of Applied Sciences is the MITZ Merseburg, a modern centre for start-ups and companies that are in the start-up or settlement phase. This offer is used intensively and offers attractive jobs not only for graduates of Merseburg University of Applied Sciences but also for experts from the Halle / Leipzig area.

From the innovative idea to the scalable business model

Before founding Robin Data, Prof. Döring, the originator and CEO of Robin Data GmbH, had already been a data protection and information security officer and experienced management consultant for many years. He also started with paper-based data protection documentation. For Prof. Döring, who describes himself as an "IT guy", it could not stay that way. He actively sought a digital solution that could be accessed from anywhere and that would run as automatically as possible. The idea to develop a data protection software was born. In September 2018, the idea became reality and Prof. Döring decided to found Robin Data GmbH. In an unusually short time of just one year for software development, the Robin Data data protection software was developed. And it was done completely in-house and in Germany. Today, the software is already in use at over 300 locations throughout Germany. Data protection made simple.

Implement data protection documentation automatically and digitally in a short time using artificial intelligence

And this is pre-filled for a wide range of industries. All data protection controllers need to do is enter the company's industry when registering in the data protection software. After registering, you will be taken directly to a dashboard that tells you which tasks you now need to complete step-by-step. This is because Data Protection Officers and lawyers have taken over the time-consuming research in which the controllers usually invest many hours. All necessary data, such as activities, processing activities as well as technical and organisational measures are already prepared for the data protection documentation. The software even knows the legal retention periods of the processed data types. Data protection has never been so easy.

Industry experts invest in Robin Data

A concept that works, as Robin Data's investors also find. The company from the heart of Germany has already received a low seven-figure sum. No wonder, Prof. Andre Döring is convinced of the idea. You can see that in the conversation. And the success proves him right.
