The Boost I fund aims to be the UK’s leading seed investment fund by volume, as it aims to complete 100 investments in less than six months. Shahryar Barati, CCO at Capital Pilot, noted, “We wanted a diligent and seamless onboarding experience for our investors and startups, and thanks to ComplyCube’s excellent platform, we’ve delivered on both fronts.”
