Coreteq’s early investment gave Serenity the fuel we needed to build momentum. They also offered invaluable support via their talented engineering resources, which enabled us to significantly advance our product development. As we scale, coreteq has renewed their commitment with further investment in Serenity and leveraged their network to open doors for us. We couldn’t ask for a more trusted partner to have in our corner as we grow.

Founders

Every tech company starts with an innovative idea.

In 2010, software entrepreneurs Gabor Puhalla and Rasta Kanocz started profiq, a small, determined engineering services business with a big mission—to bring tech companies’ innovations to life.

Eleven years and 20 many well-known clients later, including Avast, ForgeRock, bill.com, and DivvyPay, their company caught the attention of a major player in the industry, leading to its acquisition. They began brainstorming their next innovative idea—a new type of venture capital company focused on mitigating the risks early-stage startups face through pre-seed investment, cutting edge engineering talent, and the wisdom and guidance of startup veterans.

Passionate about supporting deep tech startups, they provide funding, mentorship, and guidance to help turn visionary ideas into reality. With their own start-up’s expertise and resources, Rasta and Gabor are ideal partners for startups seeking exponential growth, poised to pave the way for innovation and empower the next generation of game-changers.
