About the Round

KILDE has closed a second pre-Seed funding round of US$350,000 (S$470,000) bringing its total funding to date to US$830,000 (S$1.12 million). The company has experienced rapid 10x growth in the last quarter of 2021. KILDE’s platform is used by credit funds, family offices, and high net worth individuals to discover and invest in high-yield income-generating assets.

The bridge round was completed by a group of serial angel investors including Murat Abdrakhmanov, Adil Nurgozhin, and Olzhas Zhiyenkulov. The proceeds from the new funding round will be used to pursue KILDE’s strategy of becoming a supermarket for alternative investments in Southeast Asia and beyond. Specifically, KILDE will focus on introducing new investment products providing hands-off regular income to customers.

What Investors Say

Radek Jezbera, Co-founder of KILDE, said: “In 2022, we continue to see large potential in investments to consumer and SME loans through the best lending firms. On top of that we will be launching a new product for our customers to benefit from high yields on digital assets without being exposed to the volatility of digital currencies.”

Adil Nurgozhin, Co-founder of UMAY Angels Network, said: “I was impressed with the team’s focused dedication to a very clearly identified niche, which turned out to have great potential in different ways and markets. It’s all about execution now, as I believe KILDE has a value-driven product with clear demand not only in the Southeast Asia region but also all across Eurasia.”

Olzhas Zhiyenkulov, Founder of Tesla Capital and CEO of Paladigm Capital, said: “Financial inclusion is one of the key investment themes for my venture portfolio and platforms like KILDE will play an increasing role in promoting it by creating liquidity in the alternative assets space. With its current focus on private debt for lending companies and buy now pay later (BNPL) players, KILDE provides fund managers like me with an appealing option for short duration debt investment, the market for which has become increasingly difficult to navigate throughout the pandemic. I am excited to be on board.”
