Dorian Ciavarella and Guillaume Cruz, the former CFO of influencer platform Hivency, who achieved an eight-figure exit to SaaS solutions vendor Skeepers, established Zeliq. Being an experienced angel investor, Ciavarella was inspired to found Zeliq after observing how many businesses had trouble keeping track of their sales leads.

Zeliq’s cofounder and CEO, Dorian Ciavarella, said: “We’re on a mission to make sales easy. Most businesses are hindered by the inefficiencies and costs associated with using multiple sales tools for prospecting, outreach, team management and closing a deal. This makes managing the sales cycle needlessly complicated and often overwhelming, and reduces the time sales reps can spend on actually selling. Zeliq solves this problem with an all-in-one solution that consolidates these functions into a single platform. We’ve mapped out the most efficient way for business developers to work, giving teams the automation they need to close deals faster.”

Zeliq profiles LinkedIn users, finds potential customers, automates sales processes, and leverages AI to assess strategy, personality, and outreach content.

It incorporates extremely precise contact information from the largest database of prospective customers in Europe, which has over 450 million names. The solution's adaptability makes it useful for solopreneurs, marketers, and salespeople alike.

Without spending any money on promotion, Zeliq has more than 2000 users worldwide in less than a year, including many well-known IT brands. At the moment, France accounts for half of Zeliq's customer base, followed by the US at 25% and the rest of the world at 25%.

Funds will be allocated towards scaling in the US and abroad through marketing, product development, and hiring into its 35-person team, with the immediate goal being to establish itself in the US market.

Noam Ohana and Michael Lavner from Exor Ventures added: “Over the last few years we have seen go-to-market bloat shoot up as a result of an overly complex sales stack and an explosion of sales tools available. At Exor Ventures we are convinced that a new wave of AI-enabled solutions – favouring a “sales-in-a-box” approach – is the only way to solve what remains today one of the biggest challenges for companies. We were vastly impressed by Dorian and Guillaume’s drive and fresh take on the market: bringing all sales data and tools under one solution, simplifying the tech stack and augmenting sales and marketing staff in ways unseen to date.”
