Ark Kapital rebrands as Gilion; aims global expansion
By Gloria Mathias
Ark Kapital has announced that it will adopt the new name Gilion. This update isn’t just a name change; this is another step in the company’s pursuit towards becoming a universal growth platform capable of shaping how the next generation of tech companies are funded and grow their businesses.
Drawing from giga- + -illion and modelled after the old British for billion (thousand million), Gilion refers to the vast amounts of data generated daily by tech companies and how it can be leveraged to understand, optimise and finance growth owing to AI. By offering real-time analytics, accurate forecasting tools, and access to non-dilutive funding, we can finally start transforming the growth experience for all founders, captured on one cohesive growth platform.
“We are building Gilion to give founders across the globe access to everything they need to grow faster, from growth tools all the way to financing. Now, we’re ready for the next phase and to start rolling it out globally,” says Henrik Landgren, co-founder and CPTO at Gilion. “When a company connects to Gilion, they plug into the best AI models that growth analytics has to offer a DNA test for your growth. Once connected, they can get access to a new form of non-dilutive funding, on par with or as a complement to VC, that has never been available to them before.”
By building an “everything growth” platform, Gilion aims to set a new standard for founders and investors in growth evaluation. It predicts AI-driven decisions based on refined data, which will become the standard for all funding and credit decisions soon, transforming entrepreneurship and investments.
“We are proud of what we’ve already achieved under the Ark Kapital banner; this year alone, we went live in Germany and Finland, grew the team to roughly 80 employees, and introduced hundreds of companies to our growth forecasting tools,” says Oliver Hildebrandt, the co-founder and CEO at Gilion. “With one of the biggest non-dilutive capital pools, we are already well positioned to support European founders, but we intend to expand the pool to cover the US and the UK in the near future.”
