Copyrage is a social trading platform from Luxembourg, established in 2019, that connects bloggers, professional stock traders, betters and novices in order to keep them constantly active via the rating system that motivates them to develop their personal accounts.
As part of their journey on BlockStart’s Acceleration Programme, as an SME adopter, they were looking for new opportunities for collaboration with technology providers of DLT/blockchain fintech solutions that could improve their business. This is the testimonial of their experience in our programme.
“BlockStart programme brough CopyRage lots of positive feedback. As an adopting SME our team was fascinated by the opportunity to get matched with reputable DLT developing companies. CopyRage connected with 5 DLT developers, aiming to validate the implementation of their technology in our startup aggregator solution for crypto/betting/stocks.
Obtaining grant support under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme was truly helpful in terms of startup support. CopyRage is proud to be one of those early-stage businesses selected to participate in the programme. Not only did our team feel that we are the part of a bright fintech BlockStart community, it became clear that our platform development progress is warmly recognized and appreciated.
BlockStart brought CopyRage meaningful entrepreneurship connections and dedicated like-minded developers supporting same Sustainable Development Goals. Our team members are working hard onboarding the collaboration of charity companies to the platform. We truly hope that business connections done at the matchmaking process will evolve into a long-term partnership, as in the case of Bright Habitat (with their ChainRider solution).
We are still looking at the opportunity of the integration of other blockchain-based solutions that we had been matched with and are still in the process of deciding how to arrange things to make life easier for our users. If our team has not participated in the BlockStart partnership programme, we’d have never been given the chance to collaborate with such bright companies.”
