"Solana will power SolRazr to help projects raise capital at lightning speed, and to help investors contribute at negligible transaction costs,” co-founder Sreekanth Kalapur said.

Subscription management startup Fleek Technologies on Tuesday said that it has raised $1 million in a seed round of funding led by Axilor.
Other investors in the round included RTP Global Ventures, Titan Capital and 9Unicorns Accelerator, angel investor Ramakant Sharma and his syndicate, as per a statement.
The subscription tracking and management platform solves for a need to consolidate every subscription on a single platform, as “there has been a seismic shift across categories from a transaction-based model to a subscription model.”
