About Culmas.io

At Culmas we're building software for small and large cultural institutions, starting in the theatre industry. We are in the early stages. We've raised funding on a prototype and have runway for about a year and a half. We have more than 20 theatres and five festivals from nine different countries, signed up to use our software. We see the software having potential to expand into adjacent markets, becoming a software suite for any smaller company within culture.

Started from a theatre

Culmas is spawned out of the Improv Comedy Copenhagen Theatre. We value creativity and humor highly and we’re continuously striving to make the office a place full of motivation where ideas and inputs are welcome.
