Discover matches that were previously impossible to find
Qodeo’s diverse global reach and data capabilities create matching opportunities previously impossible to find. Qodeo is a cost effective subscription service that gives access to the global venture ecosystem for entrepreneurs and investors. Qodeo is always on, monitoring the ecosystem 24/7, looking for best-fit opportunities in real time.
At the heart of Qodeo are proprietary algorithms that analyse a wide range of criteria, matching businesses seeking investment with investors from the venture capital community who are looking for business opportunities to fund.
The Qodeo system is able to categorise matches into hot and warm matches and notifies users in real-time when new matches have been found. Once matched, entrepreneurs and investors can reach out to make contact and start up funding conversations.

Read frequently asked questions and answers about Qodeo, and if these don’t answer your question please get in touch.
Qodeo’s mission is to democratize venture, giving all entrepreneurs access to venture capital and private equity firms that they would otherwise struggle to connect with. In parallel, investors can find hidden gems, with potentially high returns, that are beyond their traditional networks. There is no catch. The price is low (see our Pricing page) as we want to be accessible to millions of entrepreneurs across the world.
No, we don’t charge any commission or manage the investment process. Qodeo fast tracks the fundraising process by identifying who you should be talking to and giving you the tools to connect with them via our mobile app or desktop platform (subject to the recipient’s contact preferences).
Think of Qodeo like LinkedIn or a dating app. We make you aware of entrepreneurs or investors that are likely to be a good fit for you. We are not involved in the resulting deals and it’s up to you if you want to take your funding relationship further.
No, Qodeo is not a crowdfunding platform. We don’t offer any funding directly from our platform but identify which VC and PE firms are likely to be a good fit for companies on the platform.
No. Qodeo is for any entrepreneur looking to raise funds (now or in the future) from VC or PE firms, however diverse and regional entrepreneurs often find that much harder as they don’t have access to established VC networks. We want to flatten the barriers to funding access for all entrepreneurs, while also giving investors visibility of businesses well beyond their own networks.
Matching is the process where our smart, AI-enabled algorithms use the data in entrepreneur and investor profiles to find best-fit funding opportunities, quickly. Qodeo automatically filters through thousands of opportunities to create matches and ranks these as Hot, Warm or Cool, depending on how good a match they are. And these matches are updated each time a profile is changed on Qodeo, even if the change was only small.
- Hot matches are rare as they are a perfect match.
- Warm matches can vary in quality as, by definition, some of the criteria don’t match. We recommend reaching out to these matches after you have reviewed their profiles to see if the discrepancy is minor or a showstopper.
- Cool matches have fewer matching criteria and are not those we’d recommend focusing on. It’s still worth keeping an eye on them, however, to see if they materialize into warmer matches or as a way of discovering the odd diamond in the rough.
Yes, you can easily search for investors or entrepreneurs in Qodeo from our robust database of thousands of investors and tens of thousands of entrepreneurs, however we recommend using matching instead as that actually grades the extent to which there is a good fit between entrepreneurs and investors.
Search results don’t consider what the other side is looking for and whether your requirements are aligned. Matching, on the other hand, gives you a curated list, based on the preferences that you, and the organizations you’re looking for, have defined. It cancels the noise, saves you time and money chasing the wrong companies and instantly identifies the best-fit companies that are most likely to materialize into a deal.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our investor data that we compile by combining quantitative data from partners and the public domain with proprietary qualitative data from face-to-face investor interviews. In fact, to date we have (in conjunction with our research alliance partners) interviewed over 1,000 of the investors on our platform, and that number is constantly growing.
Yes! Once you’ve signed up for Qodeo you can download Qodeo for Apple devices from Apple’s App store or for Android devices, from Google Play to enjoy all of Qodeo’s functionality while on the go. Via the apps you can also message investors or entrepreneurs directly from within Qodeo (subject to their contact preferences) – a feature we’ll soon be adding to our browser based ‘Contact Request’ feature.
