GOrendezvous has raised $755,000 from 18 members of Anges Québec and Anges Québec Capital.

Founded in 2012, GOrendezvous is a developer of an agenda and appointment managing technology, mainly targeted at professionals from the health, beauty, wellness and fitness sectors.

“We needed financing to accelerate our growth and enter new markets. But the support we get from members from Anges Québec goes beyond. Their coaching and counseling will bring us further, by avoiding some strategic mistakes, and also by introducing us to potential partnerships,” said Philippe Papillon, Cofounder at GOrendezvous.

“Their business project is very interesting, but we were also seduced by the entrepreneurs’ dynamism, their reactivity and their ability to listen. GOrendezvous is tackling a very challenging sector, with many active competitors, but we know they can stand out,” explained Kalthoum Bouacida, Vice-President, Investment, for Anges Québec Capital.

“We were highly impressed by the feedback shared directly from GOrendezvous clients during the due diligence process. They praised the quality of GOrendezvous’ solution, its user-friendliness, its various functionalities and its excellent cost/benefit ratio. Many GOrendezvous clients also mentioned having received numerous positive feedbacks from their own clients since implementing GOrendezvous for their online booking. All this results in a high level of new client referencing, and an almost inexistent non-renewal rate,” indicated Marcel Larochelle, Anges Québec member and lead-angel for this round.
