Are you ready to change the world?

Cogo has a mission to decentralise its ownership, placing the power of ownership in the hands of its staff, customers and users - those who are creating value for the company.


We raised US$6M! To help us scale our impact.

Recently, we successfully closed off our biggest investment round to date! We welcomed lots of new shareholders, which is aligned with our goal of decentralising the ownership of our company.

The funding will help us further grow the company, and scale our impact, making Cogo the go-to solution for change for the world’s largest enterprises. It will also be used to invest in the scalability of Cogo’s product, and launch into the North American, European and Asian markets. 


Are you an ideal investor?

We’re open to all kinds of investors as you’ll see below, but we have identified five criterion to help qualify potential new investors in Cogo. Our ideal investor would meet all criteria by responding positively to the questions posed:


Do you align with the ultimate mission of Cogo? If you are a fund, do you have a mandate from your investors/LPs to measure the performance of your investment on both financial and social/environmental returns?

Deep pockets

How much capital do you have access to? As outlined, Cogo will need significant investment to achieve its goals - so access to quick capital is critical.

Ability to help

Can you help Cogo achieve its goals, beyond simply capital? Do you have access to 100,000s of users, some potential customers, or other levers to help the company scale?

Good to work with

How easy, enjoyable and effective would the relationship be? This is going to be a highly intense ride and we want to work with good people in an efficient way!

Buys into strategy

How aligned are you with our ambitious capital strategy? Do you buy-in to the long-term ownership structure and agree with the rationale?
