Investor Connect: Seren Rumjancevs and Rain Kivisik of Dealum

December 17, 2021 by investor

On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Seren Rumjancevs, CEO, and Rain Kivisik, Founder at Dealum.

Dealum provides a superior investor group collaboration platform to build a vibrant early-stage investing ecosystem. Their objective is to become the leading global deal-flow source for early-stage investors by creating meaningful connections between investors and startups.

Seren has been involved in the technology and startup scene from the very beginning of her professional life. In over a decade in Tartu Science Park, building a career from Project Manager to Board Member, she saw first-hand how technology-intensive companies are built, how they succeed, and also learned how they fail. This didn’t stop her from falling in love with the fast-paced high-tech startup scene and eventually starting her own fashion tech company, Heelosophy, developing mass-customisation technology for high-heeled shoes’ insoles.

Rain is an Estonian entrepreneur and investor focusing on the technology and software sector. He has been one of the founders of several successful companies such as Playtech (listed in LSE), Contriber, and Dealum. He has also mentored and invested in 30+ early-stage software companies. Rain is currently working on software service for angel groups, with the goal of streamlining and making investing in startups more easier and transparent.

Seren and Rain advise investors about automating their investment process, discuss the state of investing in early-stage companies, the main change they see happening in the market, and some of the challenges investors face.
