DealMaker, a tech-enhanced online capital formation company, has been recognized by the Globe and Mail as Canada’s 6th fastest-growing firm in the country. In 2022, DealMaker ranked number 3 on the list.
In an X (Tweet), DealMaker said the recognition is “an incredible validation of the progress we’ve made on our mission to make online capital raising mainstream. This is just the beginning.”
Rebecca Kacaba, co-founder and CEO of DealMaker, issued a statement on making the list once again.
“We saw a huge pain point in the market where our clients were suffering, where the process to raise capital from investors was expensive and obsolete, and it was ripe for disruption. Our innovative technology is advancing the equity crowdfunding space by increasing access to capital to founders who previously have been under-funded while also providing pre-IPO investment opportunities for those outside of the gilded gates of Wall Street.”
DealMaker was founded in 2015 by Kacaba and co-founder Mat Goldstein. Today, the company reports around 100 employees based in Canada, the US, and South America. The company reports revenue of between USD $10 million to $25 million in 2022, growing 5,260% year over year. It is the only Fintech in Canada to make the top ten.
While based in Canada, DealMaker helps firms raise growth capital under the full stack of securities exemptions in the US, including Reg CF, Reg A+, and Reg D. It is also a regulated broker-dealer. The company reports having facilitated over $1.8 billion in funding contributed by more than 700,000 investments. Goldstein says their competitive advantage is their end-to-end platform and “elegant” digital solution.
“From the cultivation of prospects, our best-in-class conversion functionality, and our state-of-the-art transfer agent, DealMaker is a pioneer in developing the online relationship between companies and their stakeholder.”
