CEO, portagon
Johannes Laub is the founder of portagon, a software provider for digital financing. With a SaaS solution, portagon offers companies of all sizes access to capital: easily, quickly and legally secure. More than 280 customers have so far raised over EUR 220 million of capital using portagon's software. Among them are numerous customers in the field of sustainability, e.g. ecoligo, Africa GreenTec, frankly.green and enyway. “The shift to a more sustainable society and economy is leading to significant financing needs. For this, we need to tap the private capital market, to which portagon offers reliable access.” Johannes Laub started his career in 2006 at Dekabank. In 2011, he founded LeihDeinerStadtGeld.de, one of the first providers of crowdfinancing in the field of municipal finance, and in 2013, LeihDeinerUmweltGeld.de, the counterpart for sustainable financing. In 2015, he founded portagon (formerly CrowdDesk) with Jamal El Mallouki. At portagon, Johannes primarly covers all financing and sales-related matters.
