Marquee Equity, a fintech platform has helped a Florida-based B2B Payments company, Qolo.io, close its seed round and raise $4M funding, recently. “We reached out to Qolo to explore if we could be of help because they popped up on our ‘companies to watch list, an internal tool we use to scout interesting early-stage companies. We found Qolo to be an exciting company led by Patricia Montesi, an entrepreneur with a superb background in the space, and they were kind enough to give us a chance with their seed round” said Ash Narain, Founder & CEO of Marquee Equity.
Marquee Equity’s proprietary investor discovery algorithm identified a list of investors which their execution team then curated and once approved by Qolo, investors were approached. “Qolo experienced immediate positive traction on our platform and quickly received information and call requests from several top-notch angel and institutional investors. Great quality companies and founders always quickly receive investor interest and before we knew it, Qolo was in the process of closing their round!”, adds Kabir Narain, Founder & CTO of Marquee Equity.
“Founders need to approach fundraising as a funnel-based process. You begin with a large pool of interested investors and funnel them down to the few that you close around with. Marquee Equity is a great service to help you build your funnel. They’re quick and get you on the phone with the right group of targeted investors”, says Patricia Montesi, Founder & CEO of Qolo.
