Prediction markets, virtual currencies & social scores applied
How do we help startups thrive anywhere? With this motive, Michael Cayley founded Cdling Capital Services Inc. Cdling (pronounced “seedling”) is a ratings agency that measures risk and builds trust in the era of low cost, globally funded startups. That’s also why Cayley volunteers with Canada’s largest tech industry association as National VP of Startup Advocacy. Having attracted over US$50-million in investment and closed over $21-million in pre-launch sales for startups in China, the USA and in Canada, Michael is living the struggle of the self-funded, pre-revenue Founder in Canada. He understands the pace of global innovation. He founded & funded the Ontario Cross-border Technology Innovation Ecosystem (OCTIE) study and he designed and taught the ﬁrst, post graduate level, social media course in a full time program in Canada: crowdsourcing over 100 global experts as mentors. Cdling grew out of Michael’s Social Capital Value Add thesis, conceived during his MBA in Paris, linking social media to corporate valuation. SCVA was selected as a ﬁnalist amoung 379 entries from 48 countries in Ashoka’s WeMedia: Power of Us competition and was published as a ChangeThis manifesto in 2008.
