Warwick Hill, managing director at Microsoft For Startups, said:

We like the Stakeholderz approach and see the platform as a way of helping our incubated companies attract both the senior skills and the extra funding they need to see them into the scale-up phase.

Stakeholderz finds exceptional lead investors with domain expertise to work with the CEOs during the fund raising. The profile of the lead investors and their experience in bringing in investments removes a lot of the time-consuming fund-raising activity from the CEO.
