We have some exciting news to share, we are changing our name to Kaiku. Along with this name change comes an updated website and new services.
Our previous name AGORA, came from the Greek language to mean a public space popular for meetings and assembly. While this is symbolic of what we do by connecting startups together, we’ve grown and developed a lot since we started. Since then, our aims have become more targeted and we’ve been actively helping startups achieve their aims for growth.
This is where our new name has come from. Kaiku, taken from the Japanese language, means to evolve and grow. This is what we aim to do. For a long time our product and servicing offering has evolved from a focus on the community and learning aspect to services for business growth, particularly for early-stage startups.
Along with the new name comes the launch of some new services for startups, all focussed around growth and development. Our services now include:
Funding: connecting you to our investor network and supporting you through your fundraise process
S/EIS compliance and advanced assurance: making investing into your business more appealing by offering your investors tax reliefs
Pitch deck advice and design: helping you impress investors to gain the resources you need to grow
We hope that all of our existing community will join us through this exciting time. Get in touch if you’ve got any questions or to find out more about our new services.
