Orem, UT, United States, 2007/08/14 - Announcing a new, invite-only, social network for investors - FundingUniverse.com.
A new premier social network for investors, launched by FundingUniverse, will connect like-minded investors in an invite-only online community.
“We are very excited about this product as it will be a place for like-minded angels and VCs to connect, collaborate, and syndicate deals,” Brock Blake, FundingUniverse CEO explains. “Many investors belong to business or social networks; however, before now, there has not been a network created exclusively for them.”
The exclusive network will be open only to those investors who have been invited to participate. The network has already generated buzz in the investment community. In just two weeks, over 45 of the countries top investors accepted invitations to the network.
Trent Miskin, FundingUniverse CTO and lead developer on the project, explains the network was created to assist investors in locating Dealflow that matches the investor’s investment preferences while connecting investors with other investors.
“In our experience investors enjoy collaborating with one another,” Miskin said. “Investors can now discuss deal flow, ask investment questions, or just get to know investors across the nation through the use of this user-friendly network.”
Some of benefits of the investor network include:
• Connection to Active Investors across the Country: FundingUniverse is a place to collaborate and connect with other like-minded investors. As a member, investors will be able to see each other’s investment preferences, portfolio companies, and network
• Dealflow Collaboration & Group Tools: Instead of bulky and expensive group software, any member can create their own online investment group by the click of a button. As a group manager, investors can invite (or delete) as many other investor friends as desired. FundingUniverse can even create a personalized website for deal submission!
• Pre-Screened Dealflow: Instead of hiring a personal assistant, FundingUniverse will find and screen the deals that meet an investor’s preferences
• Dealflow Organization: The FundingUniverse technology allows for easy organization of all deals. Investors can search by industry, state, funding amount, or by name. All of this information will be securely stored in the investor console
• Private, Secure Network: All investor contact information is kept secure and private. Because our network is permission-based, no member (or entrepreneur) will see the investor’s personal information unless the investor allows access
• Personalized Alerts: When a deal meeting an investor’s preference is posted, the plan will be emailed to the investor immediately
