“We enter 2024 with an even greater focus on making equity ownership simpler and more empowering for everyone. Looking ahead to 2024, exciting things await. This year is expected to be a better year for tech startups due to three core reasons: a growth rebound, potential increases in venture capital investment, and an optimistic IPO market.” added Carmen Sebe, CEO SeedBlink.
In 2024, the platform plans to expand investment opportunities for investors, including the potential for co-investing in mature companies, develop the secondary market with convertible instruments, upgrade Nimity for enhanced portfolio tracking and simplified investment process, and continue fostering community engagement through organized events.
SeedBlink also aims to enhance its all-in-one platform, focusing on empowering equity ownership, simplifying investor reporting, and streamlining fundraising. The introduction of an academy and networking events, along with an expanded operational presence in the DACH region, Benelux, and France, aims to enhance community engagement and support for tech investors and founders.
