As MVP as it gets.
I’ll keep this short. I just wanted to notify you of a tool we are releasing for founders. You can skip the narrative below and go straight to the tool if you'd like. I understand impatience.
The beauty of writing on the internet is that it enables networked thinking. We perceive things differently. So the words we write can be interpreted and seen differently, depending on the stories and experiences of the people reading them. It is as if we hold a prism to people’s minds and see beautiful outcomes as startups, funds or research.
We understand the power words hold to inspire action & strategic shifts. It is why we have always focused on depth of thought instead of virality for the pieces we write.
We like the clicks but love seeing ventures built to scale- even more.
We felt the need to develop tools that empower founders to raise capital when the bear market struck last year. Data on average raise, investor activity & sectorial interest is behind paywalls today. For a founder coming from Web2, understanding the seed-stage financing landscape is a steep learning curve. We try to routinely democratise access to that information with our venture funding reports.
Today we take things one step further by releasing a dashboard that gives you the information you need about who is raising from whom. It uses a blend of paid resources, crowd-sourced data & VCs contributing to it. You can filter fund-raise events on basis of investor name, funding type or the start-up’s name.
We are still obsessed with delivering stories that are worth your time. So in the interest of saving time and resources, we took the most generic name we could find (VC Data Site) and hosted it on Coda . Yes, we built an entire website on a version of Microsoft Excel revamped for the 21st century.
Head over to VC Data Site for the latest on fundraises & fill in the forms on the landing page if you’d like to be mentioned as a start-up or a fund on the same dashboard.
That’s all I had to say. Have a pleasant day.
P.S. - I would appreciate it if you could spread the word about this tool if you find it useful.
