CloseRocket is changing the future of B2B commerce. It helps businesses expand globally with local merchants. It teaches traders trading processes and improves their trading results. B2B sales enthusiasts Katka Šimková, Dušan Koutný, Ivan Kollárik and Stanislav Bažik are behind the idea, which achieved remarkable growth in the beginning of its existence.
“We are building a platform that is built for merchants and reflects their needs, the way they work and the nature of their business. Marketers usually don’t like CRM tools and consider them a burden,” says Katka Šimková, the director of CloseRocket. It creates a place for salespeople to increase business results and do what they love, selling.
CloseRocket connects business and technology while fully exploiting the potential of artificial intelligence tools. The motivation behind the creation of the project was the desire to change the negative perception of trade in society and turn it into an opportunity. At the same time, the CloseRocket team is fully aware of how important results are and how challenging it is for marketers to achieve them. The complexity of the trading methodology and the pressure to achieve results that are sometimes beyond their direct control demotivate traders. The platform thus helps manage the business cycle, distribute tasks over time and have control over results. It helps them improve.
There is a remarkable team buiding CloseRocket. Katka Šimková was at the birth of several successful startups. She founded and managed the first dealer agency in Slovakia, Deal Factory. Her success was also confirmed by her placement in the Forbes 30 under 30 list of young talents. Thanks to this experience, together with other well-known startups, she created a fast-growing tool that changes the way companies expand to the world. She was joined by well-known startupists Dušan Koutný and Ivan Kollárik, who sold the Slovak startup Orderlord.
For CloseRocket, merchants are a priority. The platform creates a strong community of sales representatives, giving them the opportunity to improve skills and achieve better results. It helps them develop their careers and collaborate with global brands. It provides resources that allow you to work effectively and offers a helping hand throughout the process.
CloseRocket received an investment from the Slovakian fund Vision Ventures, and the Czech Jinej Fond also joined. The so-called angel investors include Andrej Kiska, Peter Komorník, Michal Šimkovič and other stars of the startup technology community.
The project will not only stay in Europe, but is already going to cross the US border in May. Thanks to its explosive growth, it is not only a tool for improving the business, but also a testament to the expertise of its team.
