Our mission

Launching a startup is the hardest thing in the world. Which is why more than 90% of startups fail. We’re building Koble so every aspiring entrepreneur can change the world.

Koble is a software platform that helps founders succeed in the early stages of building a startup. Imagine the perfect co-founder – but automated, data-driven, and accessible to everyone.

Our mission is ambitious. So we’re starting small.

We’ve built industry-leading algorithms to score how investable a startup is. Accurate scoring means we can give specific and personalised advice to a founder to give them a fundraising edge.

And the beauty of this approach is that it helps investors too. Investors get data-driven insights to augment their investment decisions. Finally some data at the early stage! Which also helps remove unconscious bias from the process.

About us

Damian and Guy met through a mutual friend in 2016. Shortly after we co-founded a venture builder, Zero 1. There we launched three tech startups and raised $8 million in venture capital, notably Lifted and Heata. We became obsessed with productising ourselves and in 2020 (after two years of lengthy discussions and technical research) we went full steam into Koble.

Damian’s passion is maths and data. He’s obsessed with launching tech products and is the force behind bringing Koble to market. Originally from Transylvania, he’s an engineer turned serial entrepreneur.

He moved to London in 2012 to cut his teeth in a global start-up ecosystem. After spending 2-years as Global Product Lead at Aviva’s Digital Garage he went on to co-found Zero 1 and then Koble.

Guy Conway

Guy is an entrepreneur at heart but started off at the opposite end, studying engineering and working as a management consultant (Accenture and KPMG). Realising his entrepreneurial bug would never be satisfied, he decided an MBA would point him in the right direction.

He studied at London Business School. Upon graduation Guy co-founded Zero 1 where he led Pre-Seed ventures. He loves the challenge of commercialising early stage tech.
