Syndicated Press Release

Kodiak is thrilled to announce the close of its $2 million seed financing round to develop Berachain’s native liquidity hub. The funding will further enable them to increase the pace at which they scale Kodiak and allow them to continue delivering cutting-edge trading products native to Berachain.

The Kodiak contributors consist of seasoned builders and enthusiasts with diverse backgrounds in DeFi and infrastructure as developers, venture capitalists, and, notably, as prior founders. Their collective journey began approximately seven months ago, fueled by a shared passion to innovate and push the boundaries within the DEX landscape. With an open-ended vision, they set out on this endeavor, driven by the excitement of enhancing Berachain’s growth and user experience.

Joining their development includes their investors: Build-a-Bera, Amber Group, Shima Capital, No Limit Holdings, Ouroboros Capital, Baboon VC, dao5, ODA Capital, Kenetic, Dewhales Capital, Tenzor Capital, Lotus Capital, Owl Ventures, nonce Classic, 3Commas Capital, Wizards Capital, Credo, Blocmates, DoraHacks, Moni, and their valued angels, including Gainzy, Altcoin Sherpa, NaniXBT, Mckenna (Arete Capital), Mr.Block (Curve), Evan Luthra, Ken (Mechanism), Marc (Mechanism), Jerd (Agnostic), Soby (Xai Games), Jani (0xHoneyJar), John Fiorelli (Kenetic), Kirby Ong, Joyce (GCR), and many others who have joined hands to support and contribute to their project.

Kodiak would also like to give a shout-out to the Berachain Foundation and, more specifically, the Build-a-Bera accelerator. When Kodiak started this journey and joined Build-a-Bera, they were unsure what to expect as they were the guinea pigs of the first cohort. However, without Berachain's support, Kodiak would be nowhere close to where they are now. Whether it’s through weekly office hours, in-person working sessions, or even hopping on ad-hoc calls, the Build-a-Bera team has been phenomenal with support on fundraising, strategic direction, business development, product, and marketing.
