We are very pleased to have Radeberger as a strategic investor with extensive network of potential customers, and Endeit as an experienced financial investor with a strong track-record of scaling tech businesses internationally on board. Also our financial advisor Clipperton has done a great job helping us navigate successfully through the transaction” says Dirk Owerfeldt, CEO of Gastrofix.
