    Pros: 

    LOTS of VCs. LOTS of emails. Full text search is very sensitive.

    Cons: 

    Don't know of any better VC list. One improvement could be other ways to filter the results.

    Rather than using the full text search to filter by categories / tags, etc, I would like some filters for industry / area of interest. Also if I could easily see the companies previously invested in, their industries and size of rounds, I would better know who to approach I think.

  • Pros: 

    A lot of investor contacts, convenient search and many opportunities

    Cons: 

    Collect even more contacts from around the world

    Sorry in advance for my English - I write with the help of an interpreter. I subscribed to this site today, the site is made very high quality, there is really a lot of useful content and contacts of investors from around the world! Unfortunately, I did not find useful contacts for myself, because my region (Russia) is not popular for investors from all over the world. fortunately for me, the service agreed to return the funds without any questions and wished good luck. I regret that in my region will not be able to use this site, I want to wish the service to develop and accumulate more investors around the world. I will be happy to return and use the services of the site in the future. Thank you Matt for understanding and quick solution of my situation and refund for subscription.

🎁 50% off lifetime discount code for PH: `EARLYADOPTERS` (expires this week) 🎁 –––––– Hey guys! 👋 Investor Scout is a categorized database of over 45,000 angel investors and venture capitalists. Finding the right investors to pitch your startup to––then finding the best way to reach out to them directly––is a nightmare. The data is spread out all over the internet, down the google rabbit hole, Twitter, LinkedIn, and AngelList. Research can take hundreds of hours on its own, not even counting the time it takes to actually reach out to investors, go through initial screens, get meetings, and finally close a round. Last year we launched Investor Hunt here on Product Hunt (https://www.producthunt.com/post...) and it was obvious to us that we hit on a strong need, so we’ve been working hard on improving everything about the product. Investor Scout is Investor Hunt 2.0 (we’ve re-branded from “Hunt” to “Scout”). Since our 1.0 almost 200 companies like Rip Van Wafels and The Family have used Investor Hunt. For our 2.0 we’ve completely revamped the UI, updated our dataset (we’re also halfway through another massive dataset update that we’ll be launching this year), and built out a more sophisticated system for saving investors & exporting their contact info. Like our 1.0, investors are categorized by what they’re likely to invest in next (based on their interests and what they’ve already invested in). The dataset includes emails (almost 30k), phone numbers, investor tags, past investments, the company they work for, and social media profiles. Investor Scout plans start at $69/mo, but we’ve made a special 50% off forever lifetime discount code for early adopters on Product Hunt: ‘EARLYADOPTERS’. This code expires this week. 🙂 We’d love feedback––thanks for reading this 🙏 - Matt & Aaron
@juhaszhenderson Very cool idea. We have a new product - Sofy - AI, you can find it on today PH section)) And we want to be your customers!
@alex_shorohov Thanks! Looking forward 🙂
Congrats @juhaszhenderson on making this available for startups' fundraising! Question: have all the investors on the database you've sourced and collated over the years agreed to having their contact information monetized in this manner? For example, when we purchase a subscription to InvestorScout - is it fine to reach out to a potential investor citing InvestorScout as the reference?
@angeloe Thanks for the comment Angelo! Investor contact info comes from publicly available sources. While a lot of investors have submitted themselves (or additional data about themselves to the database), this is more so an aggregation of public data. The value we're providing here is categorizing everyone and making relevant investors easy to find and immediately get ahold of.
Appreciate the clarification @juhaszhenderson :) and that makes sense now.
We’ve been working hard on this all throughout the holidays so we’re really excited to share it with you 🤩
Love it. Is there data on who leads seed rounds, how active they are, check size?
Yes! This needed to be made. 🙌
Killer product Matt. Super helpful!
