TORONTO, CANADA – July 2020 – Docoh, the Toronto fintech startup that gives everyone access to professional-quality information about public companies and stocks, has today announced the closing of $345,000 in seed round funding.

The startup, which launched in March 2019, uses proprietary technology to synthesize information and data from a wide range of sources, including public filings, patent applications, industry regulators, and press releases. Most information on Docoh is available at no cost to users, and can be easily accessed on mobile or desktop. It is currently used by retail investors, accountants, lawyers, recruiters, corporations, software companies, journalists and a growing list of professionals and non-professionals alike.

The new round will enable Docoh to further capitalize on its position with real-time notifications, data for hundreds of new types of corporate material events, and innovative new tools to help everyone make better investments and understand the implications of financial data and corporate actions.

Richard Robinson, CTO and co-founder of Docoh, announced, “We couldn’t have wished for a better group of investors, whose network and knowledge of the software and finance industries gives us a huge advantage. Everyone’s excited about the potential to disrupt a closed, confusing and costly industry, and level the playing field by finally giving the 99% access to the same information that the 1% has always locked away.”
