From campaign launch to end, and a patent


Dear Companists,

A lot has happened at ameria since our Companisto campaign was launched in March 2016. From new customers, to investments as well as events and developments - life at ameria is far from boring. As the campaign will end in a few days, we would like to use this opportunity to provide you with a short review and to thank you for placing your trust in Virtual Promoter. More than 1000 Companists invested in ameria and helped to advance the future of the digital shop window.

Throughout the campaign, you have gained insights into everyday business at ameria. We shared news of new customers and Virtual Promoter installations as quickly as possible. For example, during the Lego Roadshow in Galeria Kaufhof stores all over Germany.

You found out where to meet the ameria team and the Virtual Promoter on Companisto during the four months of the campaign. And let us not forget to mention our international stops such as New York, Texas, Prague, the Middle East and many more.

The aim of our roadshow was to introduce Virtual Promoter to an international audience, which we achieved with the help of our investors.



During the campaign, we gave you exclusive insights into financing at ameria, for example in our updates on private investments by Virtual Promoter fans or even employees. The Companisto campaign played a major role in attracting so many private investors for Virtual Promoter. Thanks to you, dear Companists, and thanks to our private investors and the Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft (MBG), we have now registered an additional investment volume of approx. € 1,650,000 since March 2016. This boost will enable us to make significant progress in terms of our national and international market placement, the development of our sales and marketing departments as well in technological developments.


Investments in Virtual Promoter


We shared all news in our Companisto updates and also presented them at our events.



We organized numerous events as part of the Companisto campaign: open days at our headquarters in Heidelberg, a press event and a roadshow in Munich, Berlin and Düsseldorf. We are very happy that our events were so well-received and are particularly pleased that so many Companists took the time to come and see us.

Aside from events and Virtual Promoter presentations, the ameria team also had many other things to do.


A patent for Virtual Promoter

We went on a trip to the Netherlands where we achieved our latest success: a patent for Virtual Promoter. Managing director Christian Ensslen and the head of software development, Michael Huhn, visited our patent attorney at the European Patent Office in The Hague on 16 June 2016 and returned to Heidelberg with a patent for Virtual Promoter. ameria was granted a patent for "a gesture-controlled rear-projection system".

The patent is an important step for ameria as well as for you, the Companists, as it will significantly influence developments in terms of Virtual Promoter's market placement. We are working very hard on our US patent in order to take a further decisive step towards internationalization.

We achieved a lot over the last few months. And you were there to support us. Companisto did not just offer financial support but also gave us many new marketing ideas. But we at ameria GmbH are not the only ones who will benefit - you, the Companists, will as well. You invested in a young and success-hungry business and a pioneering product. We are very happy that you are a part of our success story!

ameria only knows one direction: forward. We are convinced that Virtual Promoter has made a significant breakthrough in terms of digital transformation in the retail sector.

Kind regards,

The ameria team

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
