Caixa Capital invests in the expansion of Orankl to the USA

Caixa Capital was one of the lead seed investors in Y Combinator graduate, Portuguese startup, Orankl, based in Silicon Valley.

Caixa Capital (www.caixacapital.pt) was one of the lead seed investors in Y Combinator graduate, Portuguese startup, Orankl (www.orankl.com) , based in Silicon Valley. 

Founded in 2013, Orankl provides e-marketing tools (ratings and customer reviews, intelligent email marketing and targeted product recommendations), which have traditionally been exclusive features of large online retailers like Amazon, to small e-commerce retailers, via a SaaS platform that enables the deployment of these features quickly and easily. 

Awarded the prize of best startup at the Lisbon Challenge Program in November 2013 (sponsored by Caixa Group), the Orankl team was subsequently selected by Y Combinator (one of the most prestigious startup acceleration programs in the world, located in Silicon Valley), to integrate its first batch of companies in 2014. 

With this co-investment alongside top tier early stage US investors, Caixa Capital reinforces its presence in Silicon Valley, supporting another Portuguese startup’s operations there.
