  • The company has a team of five people that is working on the launch of a minimally functional and salable version of their product on the market at the beginning of May. Their solution is basically sold and developed for startups and service providers (e.g. banks, insurance companies) that have a large basket value, and therefore target more business customers.

Investment details

The startup claims this amount raised would be enough for roughly 2 years, but Captiwate wants to go to the market within a year and raise a next round with renowned international investors in order to accelerate scaling.
