GroupSolver raises 2 million

San Diego-based customer insights start-up accelerates its AI offering for online surveys


We are delighted to announce that GroupSolver® has raised $2M which marks the 3rd fundraising round since its inception. The round was led by Eterus Capital, Slovak private equity fund, with Tech Coast Angels and others contributing.

The completed financing brings fresh growth capital to a start-up that doubled its revenue last year and achieved profitability. “We are excited to continue our journey of transforming online surveys into a smarter and more effective insights tool. This capital infusion will help us keep up with market demand while speeding-up introduction of several transformative product features our customers have asked for,” said Rasto Ivanic, GroupSolver®’s co-founder and CEO. “Innovating quickly for the post-COVID consumer will be a major differentiator of success for our customers. GroupSolver®’s ability to make their consumer research faster and more insightful is proving to be a critical ingredient of such success.”

Eterus Capital has now joined Neulogy Ventures and Tech Coast Angles in supporting the growing business. “GroupSolver® has shown a stellar operational and financial performance since its founding in 2014. Its unique capabilities in providing insights to global leaders such as Adidas, Amazon, Google, or IRi provide a truly solid foundation for future growth. The transaction was conducted as an increase in the company’s equity capital, which is aimed to accelerate GroupSolver®’s expansion of its SaaS offering and service delivery capabilities” said Boris Kostík, Director at WOOD & Company.

“We are thrilled for GroupSolver®,” said Caitlin Wege, President of Tech Coast Angels – San Diego. “Rasto and the team think consciously about their business decisions, keeping financial viability at the forefront, while delivering growth. This new capital infusion comes at the perfect time; the launchpad is in place; now, it is time to lift off and reach further into the market with product expansion, and distribution. GroupSolver® has always been agile; this will add speed and continued innovation.”
