The Financial Times, Nikkei Asia and Statista officially rank Lakeba as a High-Growth Company, Asia-Pacific

Lakeba posted an absolute 2016 to 2019 growth rate of 527.2%. Ranking Lakeba amongst APAC’s top 10 high-growth fintechs and top 25 high-growth technology companies. Lakeba also ranks as the only high-growth venture catalyst firm.

Giuseppe Porcelli, CEO of Lakeba, says: “I always knew we had something exceptional in our business model – but grant it, I’m biased. So, to have the FT and Nikkei’s research confirm it by ranking our hypergrowth is a very special endorsement.”

Lakeba’s growth stems from building several businesses. Using centralised resources for conceiving, creating and commercialising its 15 (currently) digital ventures.

Lakeba’s AI determines which crippling frictions in business and society can be solved with technology. The technology and business teams at Lakeba engineer the start-ups that provide the fixes to these problems. These then evolve into scale-ups through Lakeba’s partnerships and commercial teams co-creating and collaborating with sector leaders, including EY, Microsoft, Mirvac, NewsCorp and Stockland, amongst others.

This unique model established 360Dgrees, AirCrypto, BRICKLET, Deals4Sport, ezidox, EziFin, EziLoan, EziTECH, ntick8, Paid By Coins, Prophetico, Quixxi, SHELFIE, Titlexchange and Verimoto as successful businesses in less than eight years. All engineered by Lakeba.

AirCrypto, Deals4Sport and Paid By Coins have been exited by Lakeba. With several additional businesses already in development.

“As the ventures are maturing, the net asset value of the portfolio is becoming very, very interesting;” commented a spokes person for Altor Alpha Fund.
