The round saw investment from previous investors, industry leaders, investment arm of a European family office, the founders, the management team, and employees.
CEO and co-founder of Gain.pro, Frister Haveman, says, “More than ever, investors and advisors require deep private market visibility. Coming from the industry ourselves, we truly needed a better solution. With Gain.pro, we have built the product we would have loved to use ourselves. This funding round is a great signal of trust in our team and strategy, especially because our investors are also avid users of the Gain.pro platform.”
Gain.pro says that the proceeds will help the company accelerate its current dynamic of more than 100 per cent year-on-year growth and expand its global coverage of private companies, while enabling extra investment in new product functionality.
The company has disrupted traditionally manual workflows in private equity and M&A, and works closely with investors and advisors to future-proof their digital deal sourcing methods.
Nicola Ebmeyer, CCO and co-founder of Gain.pro, says, “This additional investment allows us to aggressively scale both our coverage universe as well as our commercial and engineering teams. This raise is an important step towards fulfilling our mission to enable every investor and advisor to find, understand and track the companies that matter to them.”
“Understand and track companies that matter to you”
Founded in 2018 by Frister Haveman and Nicola Ebmeyer, Gain.pro aims to provide investors with accurate and critical insights into private companies and their markets. The company’s solution uses automation to remove the tedious work required to collate and analyse data from various sources.
With its software, data engineering and finance domain expertise, Gain.pro’s digital solution helps industry professionals find, understand and track private companies relevant to them. The platform deploys sourcing technology at scale, but combines this with tech-enabled human research and proprietary intelligence. This culminates in workflow automation for the discovery of new opportunities.
Currently, the company serves a wide range of blue-chip customers, including private equity investors such as CVC, Cinven and Bain Capital, M&A Advisors Lazard, Rothschild and Perella Weinberg, consultancy firms including McKinsey, Bain and BCG, and law firms.
Gain.pro is a remote-first scale-up with hubs in Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Paris, London, and Warsaw.
