DealMaker CEO and co-founder Rebecca Kacaba has been recognized as the Most Admired CEO of 2023. Kacaba called the acknowledgment an “absolute honor.”
DealMaker is an online capital formation platform based in Canada but provides services in the US as well. The company works with issuers to enable private securities offerings in a tech-enhanced environment. Securities are mostly issued under Reg CF and Reg A+ but also under Reg D and Canada’s OM exemption.
Waterstone Human Capital delivered the recognition. To quote the award:
“As a trailblazing female CEO for a tech company operating in the predominantly male capital markets, Rebecca is rewriting the playbook for entrepreneurship. Pairing unapologetic ambition with ingenuity, she is committed to driving change in the capital markets and doing business the right way.”
Kacaba and her co-founder Mat Goldstein decided to leave a career at a big law firm to disrupt the existing capital raising process and the aim to make funding as simple as eCommerce.
To date, DealMaker has processed over $2 billion in transactions and over one million investments. The company has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in Canada.
