"In late 2013, we were fortunate enough to have a group of investors from CYBAN believing in our team. From day 1, we knew that this was going to be a game changer for StudentLife. Following their guidance, we managed to become a profitable, scalable business that grew from 2 to 12 people in 3 years."
Yiannis Hadjiconstantouras, Co-Founder and CEO at StudentLife

“We have recently completed our seed funding round from CYBAN members. CYBAN helped us prepare our pitch and provided us with access to their large network of investors; a number of them believed in us and decided to invest in 11Pets. Our new investors have been great in mentoring us from the very first day of our partnership!”
Demos Pavlou, Co-founder at 11Pets
“CYBAN really helped us accelerate our fundraising process for Stagedoor.
