The Syndicate by BANA participates in
Hexact's $300K Pre-seed round
PARIS, France, Feb 2, 2022.
The Syndicate by BANA has announced its successful closing of a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) which allowed investors from around the world to participate in the $300K Pre-seed round of Hexact, Inc, an American startup with its main office in Yerevan, Armenia disrupting the automation industry with no-code work automation.
The Syndicate by BANA is the brainchild of BANA - Business Angel Network of Armenia - and Aksel Piran’s CP3 Ventures - formerly Euclide. It was launched in January 2021 to allow business angels, private investors and family offices to participate in the funding rounds of the most successful Armenian startups.
Sona Veziryan, co-founder of the Syndicate by BANA and Deputy Director of BANA, says “The syndicate is a natural extension of the business angel network we’ve been successfully developing since 2017. BANA has become the go-to place for business angels to discover the Armenian startup ecosystem. It is interesting to note that our network’s reach extends far beyond the borders of Armenia thanks to the diaspora. Startup investing is an amazing way to connect Armenians from around the world”.
Aksel Piran, co-founder of the Syndicate by BANA and at CP3 Ventures, says “Syndicates are an innovative way to attract investment in Armenia, a country where startups have traditionally been dependent on foreign venture capital firms. Our investors come from 26 countries willing to access an exciting deal flow in a small and booming scene. The amount of capital raised by startups has grown 500% in 2021 over 2020 to more than $300M, which represents a staggering 2.2% of Armenia’s GDP”.
Stepan Aslanyan, CEO and founder of Hexact, Inc, says “I am delighted to have been working with Sona and Aksel who helped bring in an amazing number of highly supportive investors from around the world”.
