USA: GoTradeSeafood.com Catches Additional Financing From European Waters
The largest Net Market for global seafood, GoTradeSeafood, has announced it's newest round of financing from Dexia Ventures, the venture capital arm of Dexia Bank. Dexia Bank is a leading financial institution based in Brussels, Belgium. This important round of major financing from the Belgium bank provides a gateway into Europe for GoTradeSeafood, as well as demonstrating European interest in U.S. based Internet ventures. GoTradeSeafood's current net market offers an open negotiation forum between seafood professionals, creating market clearing prices, and providing the necessary enabling tools online to complete the deal. It provides previously unattainable worldwide reach for seafood buyers and sellers alike. This latest round of financing will allow these strategic services to expand in depth and quality, as well as provide the necessary marketing muscle to expand the service. "This newest round of major European financing is yet another vote for GoTradeSeafood's leading net market status" says Avi Cohen, CFO of GoTradeSeafood. "Our financial backing by US based investors and European investors confirms our global business model. It will help us cast a better line on international markets as Dexia will provide additional market muscle to reach new customers." Jurgen Ingels, Investment Manager of Dexia Ventures, says " GoTradeSeafood.com is an example of a new B2B concept where buyers and sellers have a real profit in using the system. Buyers are able to close deals at better prices and sellers have more guarantees that they will be paid in time. That's why Dexia Ventures believes that GoTradeSeafood.com has the potential to become an important player in the worldwide seafood market."
