Agathos, a London, England-based investment firm that invests in small UK-trading businesses, has selected DealCloud for deal origination, pipeline management, and relationship management.
“We were very aware that we didn’t have to reinvent the wheel when it came to tech,” said Simon Danielli, Head of Special Projects at Agathos. “We have followed DealCloud closely over the last couple of years and it became evident through the scoping process that DealCloud was best in class. The platform provides unparalleled degrees of flexibility enabling us to use data as effectively as possible across all areas of deal and relationship management. We will also use it for investor relations as we hold further closes throughout 2021 after the recent launch of our second fund. Remote working conditions have put greater demands on efficient technology and having DealCloud in place will provide a step-change improvement to how we can operate and help to optimise our performance in deploying Fund II.”
