Ex-Googler Lina Gantar launches crowd funding agency in Manchester – Manchester Evening News

Ex-Googler Lina Gantar has launched a new crowd funding agency to help tech firms secure the money they need to scale up.

Nuuk, which has been created with partner Luka Cvikl and is based at Accelerate Spaces on Princess Street, Manchester, has already helped secure over $13m for 40 start-up businesses including Ossic X and Orbitkey.

As regular visitors to Google HQ in Dublin, Lina, 28, is a go-to market strategist, and Luka, 29, is a digital marketing expert and are set to play a major part in furthering Manchesters position as the tech innovation capital of the UK.

Both originally from Slovenia, the tech-savvy pair who first launched Nuuk in Dublin in 2015, relocated to Manchester where thet have grown their team to six members.

The company, which is aiming to target turnover of 500,000 for 2018, are also looking for new recruits.

Lina, said: Latest figures show that crowdfunding is a $34.4bn industry, which is expected to surpass venture capitalism by 1.8 this year. However, not all applicants are successful and theres a real skill to being selected – its vital to seek expert support to ensure success.

Nuuk works with companies all over the world, helping them secure the funding they need to launch and scale up. We specialise in tech, fashion and design industries but are open to using our experience to support a variety of businesses into action.

With their sights set on a 350,000 turnover for 2017, Lina and Luka are well on track to exceed their target.

Luka said: Weve purposefully formed quite a niche offering as the popularity of crowdfunding grows so too does the demand for dedicated, expert support to attain it.

Additionally, we see a big increase in the demand for go-to-market strategy, which is what crowdfunding essentially is, so we can apply our crowdfunding expertise to other industries as well.

Were meeting new clients all the time and our roster is rapidly expanding, so were feeling really positive about our future in Manchester.
