As the only company with successful experience in supporting B2B organisations through their crowdfunding campaigns, Cosmonauts are excited to announce the beginning of Ruby Datum’s crowdfunding campaign with Crowdcube.


In 2020, Timo Karakashev, Cosmonauts’ Founder and CEO, and Nick Watson, Ruby Datum’s Founder and CEO, embarked on a close working partnership with both companies. Ruby Datum is now preparing to take the leap from start-up to scale-up as we support their campaign to raise funds through Crowdcube, to help accelerate the development of their platform. 


And we want you to be a part of their journey to the top.


What is Ruby Datum?


Ruby Datum is a first in service Virtual Data Room software provider who places the user experience at the heart of everything they do. The platform already has a credible reputation for being intuitive, resilient, rapid for collaboration and secure as they hold both ISO27001 and ISO9001 accreditations. 


Already with over 23,000 users & 11 million documents across thousands of deals, they are seeing an increase in the number of new clients and intend to adapt features to offer a fully integrated document, data, and task management solution.


The Ruby Datum story so far


The past 5 years have been nothing short of an exciting journey. Since they first launched over 5 years ago, they have very much been bootstrapped. By staying passionate, sticking to their core values and putting the user first, they have steadily scaled based on the feedback you have provided.


Their clients will tell you that innovation is very much at the forefront of everything they do. They tackle complex challenges with simple approaches, and provide a slick, fast and easy to use interface that everyone they speak with enjoys. Our team has stayed small and their rigorous testing along with disciplined coding practices has ensured they can scale the platform without huge code re-writes and complications. Architecture planning has always been a core part of their growth strategy.


As a Virtual Data Room provider, a platform that facilitates mostly transactional legal work to allow parties to collaborate around documents with a strong emphasis on security and accountability, Ruby Datum has several features such as their rapid and accurate search engine, watermarking, and easy-to-set bulk permissions tool that has seen firms take the platform’s use beyond its intended business purpose as a Virtual Data Room, just because it is so intuitive.


What is crowdfunding?


Crowdfunding with Crowdcube allows start-up companies to source investors in a democratised way, fueling the next generation of business. With investors given equity stakes of the company, start-ups are able to seek out those with financial resources to expand business opportunities. Cosmonauts has a great track record, using our proven methodology to take clients, such as ScribeStar and Legal Connection, all the way through their crowdfunding process. And with previous fundraising journeys amounting to 75% overfunding, we like to think we’re pretty good at it!
