Berlin-based Beazy snaps up new funding to support the growing creative economy

Beazy, a startup aiming to build the operating system of the booming creative economy, has secured new funding. It takes the Berlin-based team’s total funding to €1 million as demand for creative content continues to grow.

For companies and organisations across sectors, content has become incredibly important. There are now a number of companies helping fuel the creativity that underpins the creation of unique content, and the creative economy is emerging as a strong force.

The creative economy refers to the interconnection between human creativity and ideas and intellectual property, knowledge and technology. In the digital era, different digital tools help creatives create this content and distribute it. With the rise of AI technologies (ChatGPT – we’re looking at you), the future of this economy and content production has come under the spotlight, with questions arising over content authenticity and what it means to develop unique pieces.

Within this context, Berlin-based Beazy is aiming to build the operating system of the creative economy. Its platform enables companies and entrepreneurs to produce high-quality visual content via its marketplace and helps with business management.

The team has just secured a new investment to bring its total funding amount to over €1 million. It counts angels and small funds like BTQ Ventures, HitchHiker Ventures and Google Black Founders Fund Europe 2022 as backers.

Launched in 2019 by Jonas Ngoenha, Julia Besson and  Daniel Montenegro, Beazy offers an all-in-one platform for teams to plan, produce and deliver content from start to finish. It connects businesses to talented content creators, streamlining the entire production process, making it more affordable and democratising access to the creative economy.

The startup also hosts social meet-up events so creatives can connect in person, building a creative community and fueling the development of this emergent economy. These so-called ‘BeazyMeets’ began in Berlin but have since spread across Europe to include Paris, London, Geneva, Lisbon, Porto and Hamburg. The platform also enables creatives and members to book locations and rent out spaces for projects – such as studios, homes, restaurants and so forth.

In 2022 the team acquired WhoCan as its B2B interface really started to take off. Now, the company counts over 8000 users and has over 50 countries with Beazy Listings. It’s reported 4x year-on-year growth and current clients include the likes of  Zalando, H&M, Pinterest, Babbel, Bolt, Delivery Hero, UrbanSportsClub, Gorillas, and TaxFix.

Now, securing this new investment, Beazy is betting on European expansion. It’ll also launch new AI tools for content creation and grow the team.
