CoGo is a world-first technology platform that connects consumers and ethical businesses for the good of people and the planet. Founded in New Zealand in 2016, CoGo has scaled fast - identifying the UK as a subsidiary as part of its plan to go global.
Newfound’s team worked directly with CoGo chief executive Ben Gleisner since 2018, providing market-entry services to help the business relocate to the UK.
UK setup and funding propel CoGo forward
We helped CoGo execute its go-to-market strategy, with Ben relocating to London, raising capital via the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), forming a UK advisory board and making key commercial staff hires. We introduced Ben to professional services providers in legal, banking, accounting and PR.
Leveraging our well-established tech investor network, we sourced, introduced and directly contributed over £400,000 of new capital to CoGo’s UK funding. We led the recruitment of CoGo’s UK managing director & remain close to the business and its needs through introductions and ongoing support.
