6Wunderkinder raises €500,000 to build slick productivity tool called 'wunderkit'

6Wunderkinder, a Berlin-based startup, has raised 500,000 euros (or roughly $660,000 at current conversion rates) in its second round of funding.

Germany’s High-Tech Gründerfonds made the investment and will also help the fledgling company by providing know-how and consulting for their upcoming project.

Said project is dubbed wunderkit, which is referred to as a “modern working and productivity platform”.

6Wunderkinder currently offers a slick task management tool called wunderlist, which is available for Mac, Windows and iPhone and was already downloaded over 100,000 times.

Wunderkit will be a more robust productivity platform, aimed to help companies, freelancers and other groups connect and collaborate efficiently on a single platform that “embraces all
necessary tools”.

The funding, which follows an earlier angel funding round that netted the startup 100,000 euros, will be used for financing the technical realization of wunderkit.

The German startup says it is currently hiring a slew of new developers, and implementing the necessary technical infrastructure.

The launch for wunderkit is planned for the first or second quarter of 2011.

If it looks even half as streamlined as the company’s website, or wunderlist for that matter, I suspect many will want to give it a good whirl. Stay tuned.
