It can be hard for startups to find early-stage funding, and it can also be hard for investors to cut through the noise and find businesses they really want to fund.

Connectd uses smart matching technology to tear down these old barriers and connect startup founders with business advisors and investors.

Roei Samuel founded Connectd in 2020 to answer the problems he faced in his own career as an entrepreneur and angel investor. Through this new company, Samuel has succeeded in realising his goal to use technology and data to help fellow entrepreneurs find investors.
