Aligning raise and company strategy
Deckee leveraged the raise to drive awareness and engagement for their upcoming product release of a marketplace for boating equipment and insurance. One of the ways they did this was by tying investor rewards to the upcoming new product release. When we engage with a client we seek to understand what upcoming company milestones they have so that we can ensure the raise is used to amplify.
