Canadian Technology Startup Lil Durk Raises $20 Million


TORONTO, Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Lil Durk ("LilDurk.com" or the "Company"), a Canadian news & technology company enhanced by A.I.-driven neural networks, announced today that they have raised an additional $20 million in equity through a private funding round led by Alexander Elder.

Why it matters: The Canadian startup company's innovative approach to A.I.-driven news distribution technology, if successful, could allow top newswire outlets to significantly slash costs by creating more favorable news, and ultimately reduce the amount of misinformation.

Zoom in: Lil Durk's interim CEO and co-founder Alexander Elder told our source in an interview that the company's technology relies on highly advanced, ESG friendly neural networks relying on blockchain technology to propagate newswire data.

The intrigue: Lil Durk had previously raised $15M in a private funding round led by Andreessen Horowitz, commonly known as a16z, a prominent source of capital for various startup blockchain technology and software companies.

In the near future, Lil Durk says they also plan to develop a KYC compliant and fully regulated decentralized crowdfunding platform which startup founders can utilize to raise capital and pitch their concept to investors.

"Furthermore, we are in the process of finalizing some of the logistics for a world first Web3 crowdfunding platform ran on the Ethereum blockchain," Mr. Elder added.

What's next: Mr. Elder tells us his company Lil Durk's number one priority is to build some of the latest and greatest technology available for newswire companies.
