The Qodeo story

Democratizing Venture

As entrepreneurs ourselves, we were frustrated to find how hard it was to raise funds and felt there must be a better way. Particularly for underserved entrepreneurs from regional and diverse communities, who struggle to access trusted venture networks. That’s why we created Qodeo – democratizing venture so that diverse entrepreneurs from across the world can rapidly connect, at low cost, with relevant venture capital and private equity firms. And for investors, Qodeo cancels the noise, helping them identify great businesses to fund and increase their returns.

What is Qodeo?
Connecting the global venture community

Qodeo revolutionizes the way entrepreneurs find funding, and investors build pipelines. Our research found that entrepreneurs spend hundreds of hours trying to identify who might fund them, whereas investors struggle to create high-quality deal flow, filter opportunities and source diverse investments from beyond their traditional networks.

Qodeo gets entrepreneurs identifying and potentially speaking to the right venture capitalists – quickly. Our desktop tool and mobile apps automatically filter thousands of opportunities, providing alerts and the ability to connect directly with the qualified few that are most likely to materialize. Qodeo does the work for you, making it much easier to navigate through the global venture community.

How does it work?
Combining smart algorithms with qualitative data

Qodeo combines quantitative data from partners and the public domain with our own proprietary qualitative data. Working with teams from 30 of the world’s top business schools we interview leading private equity and venture firms in person, curating rich and dynamic insights that inform faster and better decision making.

We then apply Qodeo’s smart algorithms to the data, so that businesses of all sizes with Qodeo profiles can instantly be matched with pre-vetted, best-fit opportunities.

We have been called the eHarmony of the venture community, which is apt given that the average entrepreneur and investor relationship lasts longer than most marriages! Qodeo saves you time and money kissing frogs.
