Cognism receives investment from Startup Funding Club and other international investors

Cognism, a UK-based startup with an international team, has closed its seed investment round of $500,000 with the help of several institutional and angel investors.

Cognism, an end-to-end sales-acceleration solution that provides sales organisations with a more efficient way to prospect, has secured $500,000 in seed investment. The investment will be used to fund the development of its solution, which provides sales organisations with a more efficient and privacy compliant way to prospect customers.

“Raising this round was an important step for us,” said James Isilay, CEO, Cognism. “In the months ahead, we’ll be investing heavily in the product itself to move toward a frictionless customer experience, expand our ability to collect and reason about data at scale, rapidly grow our data asset through strategic partnerships, and introduce Cognism to more sales and marketing teams.”

Netcetera, a Swiss-based software company, led the funding round into Cognism, which was also backed by other notable investors including Startup Funding Club, SC Ventures, Tsingbay Venture Capital, Tom James, James Hodson, Usman Khan and others. In this occasion, Startup Funding Club used its unique investment model, which combines its award-winning angel network and its SEIS Fund.
