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.

Pros:

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.

Our company used Signal religiously during our (successful) seed raise and it's hard to estimate how much time and hassle it saved us.

Pros:

Completely cuts the noise of looking for the right investors for your stage, industry, check size, etc. and gives best intro path in seconds

Cons:

Initial interaction with product may take a few minutes to familiarize, then it's off to the races

I can search for VCs by sector, create target lists, edit information, see my connections, and much more!

Pros:

Seamless!

Cons:

Not IMO

This is a huge step in the right direction

Pros:

Definitely agree that fundraising is broken and needs to be fixed

Cons:

UX still developing

Love what they are doing to help startups founders.

Pros:

As an NFX alumni i see the good it did to start-ups that worked the

Cons:

Had some password issues in the past.

This is making every interaction between VC and founder way more meaningful.

Pros:

It saves time, provides transparency and looks great.

Cons:

Nothing I can think of at the moment.

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.

Pros:

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.
