AhoyConnect is an all-in-one community intelligence platform, which aggregates data from applications. Now, the company announced that it has bagged $3 million (nearly £2.1 million) in a seed funding round.
Focuses on building UK team
The investment round was led by Inovo Venture Partners and KAYA and additional funding from existing investor Lighthouse Ventures. AhoyConnect has remote offices in the UK and is focused on building a commercial team with the investment.
“What used to be a Product-Led Growth is now becoming Community-Led Growth. The problem is that organizations lack the understanding of what happens inside their community and the value it brings to the business,” said Tomas Jasovsky, founder and CEO of AhoyConnect. “Our platform maximizes the value of community data offering visibility and actionable insights to improve customer acquisition, aid in retention, and inform product decisions.”
“Like many others in tech, we’re convinced that community-led growth is the next big thing. AhoyConnect is a solution that not only addresses the confluence of all the workplace and collaboration tools but also the manner in which we work and communicate in 2021 and beyond,” said Michal Rokosz, Partner at Inovo Venture Partners. “Having the best solution to a widespread problem is a great start, but you still need the right people to put the pieces together. Tomas has managed to get fantastic people on board and form a great foundation for a world class team.”
