London-based platform connecting entrepreneurs with investors and non-executive directors, Connectd has raised $2.6 million in (another) seed round. According to the company, its third seed round funding will be used to support continued growth, particularly in the areas of data, corporate enterprise, and customer support. Since late 2020, the startup has raised $5.6 million.
Connectd’s seed round (this time) was provided by LiFE Ventures, Blue Lake, Mail Venture Partners, Arch Law and Syndicate Room. A host of angel investors including former McKinsey & Co’s head of financial services, Alan Morgan, Twyn founder, Tim Levy, Monster Energy Drink’s President of EMEA, Guy Carling, and UKAT founder, Daniel Gerrard also joined the round.
The startups' technology helps organisations and individuals find each other through a data-driven approach, one that’s seeking to cut out the middlemen in the investment cycle.
For investors, this means receiving relevant and strategic opportunities, and for startups, this means being partnered with the best people that will help them to achieve their growth aspirations. At least according to Connectd.
“Creating a commitment to provide regular, high quality and transparent updates to investors is one of the biggest indicators of startup success, and Connectd is uniquely providing the methodology and tools to compute the most important data points that help founders relay information and metrics in a meaningful and frictionless way,” explained Connectd founder and CEO Roei Samuel.
