Koho Raises $8 Million From Portag3 Ventures


Since day one, our mission at Koho was to help Canadians take control of their personal finances and bring more transparency to the Canadian financial sector. Though the journey hasn’t been always been easy, it’s through the support of people who believe in our company and our team who make it all worth it.

Last week, we were thrilled to announce that after just five months of launching across Canada, we have closed an $8-million investment with Portag3 Ventures. With this investment, we aim to make scale our technology platform to better serve more Canadians across the country and expand our team to our new Toronto headquarters.
