AUSTIN, Texas & TORONTO, May 24, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIBC Innovation Banking is pleased to announce growth capital financing for DealMaker, a leading capital raising technology platform. The financing will enable the company to accelerate its growth across North America.
Founded in 2018, by experienced Bay Street lawyers, Rebecca Kacaba and Matt Goldstein, DealMaker’s ambition is to modernize the shareholder issuance space, with recent successes including the Green Bay Packers issuance.
"DealMaker is providing customers with a comprehensive and modern capital raising experience while maintaining a laser focus on transparency," said Rob Rosen, Managing Director in CIBC Innovation Banking’s Toronto office. "We are proud to provide them with financial and advisory support as they continue their impressive growth trajectory."
"We are committed to not only making raising capital digitally seamless, but also are driving to democratize the capital markets as a whole," said Rebecca Kacaba, CEO of DealMaker. "Raises done through our platform typically see a much more diverse set of investors and founders, resulting in a much-needed redistribution of access to the capital markets."
This announcement comes on the heels of DealMaker’s recent acquisition of Ridge Growth Agency, the industry-leading crowdfunding marketing agency that supports companies with their private placements.
