Fuel to launch Xara Cloud, a design platform bringing business content to life

July 16, 2018

Berlin, Germany – Xara GmbH has closed a funding round of €3 million from BELLEVUE Investments & Co, an investment group who now boasts a growing portfolio of international software businesses.

Xara’s mission is to bring business documents to life, by bridging the gap between professional design and business content. No design experience is needed to create brand focused, audience engaging documents.

“We are excited about the market disruption potential of Xara. In today’s world, users expect rich functionality in easy to use packages. Unfortunately, the business market has been left with legacy, bloated, and complex products. We believe by combining Xara’s deep design software expertise with modern product principals, Xara has the chance to become the market leader.”

– Jürgen Jaron, Founder and CEO of BELLEVUE Investments & Co.

The funding will be used to launch Xara Cloud, a powerful drag and drop browser-based editor that provides business with the ability to centralize the creation, collaboration, and control of any business content ranging from social media graphics to flyer and brochures to stunning presentations. Xara Cloud has advanced collaboration tools as well, making it easy for users to share their documents with colleagues and clients, all on one central platform, simplifying workflow and maximizing productivity.
Xara Cloud helps businesses accelerate their growth and gain greater brand visibility.

“Xara has made the output I created for my clients MUCH more professional, improving my image with them. After showing a client just a draft they actually mentioned the improvement (over powerpoint). Xara has made me better with my clients.”

– Walter, Founder and CEO of BELLEVUE Investments & Co.

Xara Cloud is available immediately at www.xara.com. Get started with the Free edition and pricing for Premium starts at $5.95 / user / month.

“We are extremely excited with the feedback from customers about the impact value Xara is having on their business. The funding and guidance from BELLEVUE will allow us to successfully execute on providing products and service users love to our current and rapidly growing customer base.”

– Matt Bolton, CEO, Xara GmbH
