We want to make early stage funding: more accessible and simpler to access. And for helping you get ready for investment, lets help you simplify that process too…
Originally called AGORA, Kaiku was co-founded by Alex Balderstone and Trishna Nagrani who both met at Warwick University. Alex was looking for his next venture after having set-up one of the UK’s largest student conferences and Trishna in a similar vain had just left running the UK’s first student run Incubator. They both still found it hard to answer though, where should they go to launch a business, let alone how could they go about fundraising.
So in Autumn 2019 AGORA launched as an early stage funding solution to help startups access the early stage capital that still remains so hard to access in the UK, whilst making the journey to ‘investment readiness’ clearer too.”
In March 2020, the decision was taken to change the name from AGORA to Kaiku. It was believed that Kaiku, meaning to grow or evolve in Japanese, was an appropriate name for a business dedicated to helping new startups grow.
