Equity management platform reaches £8m Series A funding with new extension
A London-based equity management platform has today announced a Series A extension led by Fidelity International Strategic Ventures.
Capdesk has secured the extension through the venture capital team at Fidelity International and early-stage fintech investor MiddleGame Ventures.
Capdesk aims to cater to founders, employees and investors by digitising equity, options and warrants transactions and giving shareholders access to Europe’s largest private secondaries market through a partnership with Seedrs.
The Series A extension brings Capdesk’s total Series A investment to £8m, and will enable the firm to build a fully-integrated ‘seed to post-IPO’ equity solution for its users.
Christian Gabriel, CEO and co-founder of Capdesk, commented: “Today’s announcement makes Capdesk the best-funded equity management solution in Europe.
“More importantly, it combines the fintech expertise and capital support from MiddleGame Ventures and Fidelity, paving the way for Capdesk to build an equity solution never before seen in Europe.
“With this investment we can take a significant leap forward in our journey to create a European-wide digital ecosystem that allows for the safe, secure and fair transaction of equity.”
Alokik Advani, managing partner at Fidelity International Strategic Ventures, added: “Capdesk has positioned itself as a leader in digital equity management.
“We’ve been watching the company’s growth closely and have been impressed with its digital capabilities for cap table and employee stock option plan management.
“We look forward to supporting Capdesk’s ambitious growth plans and leveraging potential partnership opportunities with Fidelity.”
