Founder-VC network for fundraising
Signal 2.0 helps top founders & VCs find each other, transforming the fundraising process. 10's of top VCs helped build. Fundraising is medieval. Time to fix it.
I like the network idea and finding connections through others.Cons:
This is only connected to gmail, that you can only connect it to one email (many of us use multiple), and that sweet spots are singular.
It would be great (as a start) if we could connect this to multiple email addresses as many people have multiple nowadays. It would also be great if you could specify "sweet spots"/investing ranges in multiple ways. Many people in venture invest both out of a fund and personally (angel) or have access to SPV vehicles for certain size deals and a fund for others. Pretty cool product otherwise.Gyan Kapur has used this product for one week.
Very easy to find the VC's that are interested in your companies focus area and funding level.Cons:
They system could use some gamification to communicate where in the introduction process you are.
We used Signal to set up almost half of our investor interactions. The system makes sure we came in with a 'warm' introduction from a friend which greatly improved the odds of a favorable outcome.Faber has used this product for one month.
