The Saidler & Co. portfolio company “Numbrs” is preparing for a new phase in its development based on the cutting-edge app, the recent financing round totaling more than USD 40 million and the continued dynamic user growth. The company will now be able to focus to scale the Numbrs platform across various European markets.
An important step is the strengthening of European policy expertise on Numbrs’ Advisory Board by appointing the former Vice President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, Dr. Viviane Reding. She joined the Advisory Board on 1 October and has 25 years of experience in European politics, including 15 years as European Commissioner. Reding became particularly well known through the harmonization of European data protection law and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Dr. Viviane Reding will advise Numbrs management on all EU issues, especially on questions relating to data protection. In addition to Dr Viviane Reding, the Advisory Board also includes Dr. Philipp Rösler, former Vice Chancellor and Minister of Economics and Technology of Germany, Sir Victor Blank, former Chairman of Lloyds Banking Group, and Bill Benz, former Head of PIMCO EMEA.
