Rebecca Kacaba has been in the startup game for more than a decade. While working as a capital markets attorney, she noticed a persistent problem – startup founders were struggling with raising capital. And specifically, they were struggling with the nitty gritty details that come after an investor agrees to fund a startup.
In that struggle, Rebecca saw an opportunity. And she set out to build the “Shopify for raising capital.”
DealMaker is a platform that focuses on being behind the scenes of capital raises. Founders take the center stage as they raise capital, and DealMaker provides all the resources to make that process quick and simple. With more than $1 billion in successful raises last year, DealMaker has established itself as a name in the startup investing space.
In this episode of the KingsCrowd Startup Investing Podcast, Chris Lustrino talks to Rebecca about how DealMaker is providing clarity to founders. By letting startups self-host their own capital raises, DealMaker can leverage its partner network and data analytics to set founders up for success.
