Platform Update: Followers + Messaging

Investing is inherently social. Investors are investing in the founders and their team just as much as the idea. That is why we made it easy to interact with Founders and Investors through our new Follow and Messaging functionality.

Now it will be easier than ever to interact with your Followers and Message them relevant news and updates about the business. This will lead to more Investors engaged around Deals and eventually more deals funded as a result.

Check out the new Follow and Messaging tools to see how you can start leveraging it to grow your network.
