I'm a huge fan of the ability to link up your email and let VCWiz track your correspondence for you; it's a huge pain to have to do this manually, and automating it this way is a great idea.

The design of the website is nice - very clean and clear cut. I also really like the option to look at a specific startup and see which investors have worked with them in the past (which provides an idea of who other members of the marketplace worked with).

Pros:

Great place to centralize the process of reaching out to venture capital firms and track your progress with each of them

Cons:

Seems like there might be a few UI quirks but overall the functionality seems to be in place

Got in early with this and think its really interesting! What is on the roadmap?
@bentossell smarter discovery is the big one. I want to start incorporating more (fairly basic) ML and build a stronger core recommendation engine. Lots of interesting ways to tackle this. Better social/graph integrations and intro facilitation are also on the list (for example, finding a way to merge the Intro Path and Intro Request features that currently exist). And of course, there's always a ton of continued work into cleaning the incoming investor data, and finding new data sources to incorporate.
It's been a pleasure for me and the Know Your VC team to partner with you in launching this tool! Great work 🤓
@anthonyjz17 thanks dude! it's been a fun ride :)

Awesome product.

Pros:

Really useful specific data on each partner. Especially helpful early stages of partner/ fund discovery.

Cons:

Interface could be a bit faster.

- Beautifully designed and intuitive even for new users at any stage of the fundraising process

- Thought I left no stone unturned when it came to possible investors, but the discovery feature on VCWiz really is amazing + has all investor info in one spot

- Diagram of possible connections is amazing!! I can see from whom to get warm intros, etc.

- Love the recommended lists

- This is going to be incredibly useful as we fundraise

Pros:

Amazing discovery features found on no other tool, really synthesizes *everything* I need for fundraising all in once place. And the CRM!!!

Cons:

Not many govtech investors, but that's a function of the tech ecosystem rather than VCWiz (which showed me way more than I knew about)!
