Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to log in with my LinkedIn account?
We use your LinkedIn account to verify your personality. We don’t have access to any of your data except your name, profile picture and email. We never post on your behalf.
How much does your service cost?
We use a freemium model. That said, you can conduct one smart search for free and browse the database as you like. If you want to make more searches or get advanced data about funds, you can choose your plan here.
It seems to me that some investors are not relevant. Why so?
We use a scoring system that awards points for VCs for each of the matching data points. Investors that have scored the most points get on top. Sometimes they score so highly on certain criteria (e.g. extremely relevant by industry) that they get on top despite not being an exact match on other criteria (e.g. geography). Since we cannot take into account 100% of all important factors, some of the suggested funds may seem irrelevant on one or multiple criteria. However, they are never put on the list randomly. This approach allows us to isolate patterns in the behavior of funds that are invisible to the human eye, and, most importantly, are based solely on verified facts.
I was told that getting warm intros is the only way to contact investors. Why should I believe you?
That’s simple. If a VC only accepts warm intros, that means that they place more value on the quality of the founder’s network than on the quality of their startup and product. Good network builders now win over great entrepreneurs. This shouldn’t be like that, and many VCs start to realize this. Our research shows that up to 72% of VCs read cold emails. They just don’t like getting irrelevant emails which have nothing to do with their investment focus. With our tool you won’t get into the wrong mailbox. There will always be a match in industry and stage.
