Fundraising is hard. Over the past 10 years we’ve been working with start-up’s looking for seed capital, successfully helping growth-stage companies raise at $1b+ valuation and even spent time sitting on boards of public traded companies.
This has given us an incredible opportunity to not only help companies raise capital, but create a process around it to improve our success rate. Our process is a mix of creating pitch materials, cold calling and email outreach.
Initially it was pulled together using trello, gmail and a series of CRM tools. While the process worked well, there are things inefficient in the tools we used.
We thought about how we could centralize the process to make it even easier to manage. That is why we created Investor Intelligence.
We are very excited about delivering our process in a tool so more teams can raise the capital they need to grow.. .

Despite playing a major role in the economy, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) still suffer from a deep funding shortfall. The combination of non-reliable public information and complex share transferability mechanisms doesn’t attract investors because of the illiquid nature of SMEs’ stocks.
SMEs had not so far, few financing tools are at their disposal until the emergence of token based fundraising mechanism, most well known as Initial Token Offering (In 2018, almost 21 billions of dollars, have been raised to finance up to 900 projects). This new method is an important step for the global finance ecosystem towards the decentralization of finance.
However, current access to this new powerful fundraising way remains very scattered, costly and opaque. Tozex platform allows to manage entire token life cycle (primary and secondary market) within one unique automated and fully regulated platform.

Intro Hi, we are CoolDex and we want you to thrive! CoolDex has built a world-class Hybrid DEX, powering the future of Digital Finance.

We will play an ever more important role in world finance, tokenizing financial assets and offer multiple pairs of fiat, crypto and digital assets. – CoolDex solving problems Many of the current crypto exchanges suffer from a number of problems: ● Technical architecture Many exchanges are put together quickly in a modular model, by good tech people, but who have little or no experience in finance or in operating an exchange.
They often choose the simplest approach to get the system up and running. While this may work well in the beginning, as traffic grows, the system will not able to handle the increased load.
Exchanges need to be engineered from the ground up with security, efficiency, speed, and scalability in mind. This often slows down the initial development, but is critical for long-term success.
Our team has decades of combined experience building and maintaining a world class financial system that shape the economy. ● Security There are hundreds of centralised exchanges that went down due to being hacked.
