My company, CapLinked, has been in the news a fair amount in recent weeks.
Earlier this month, Forbes published a Q&A with me about using CapLinked to manage a business transaction such as a capital raise:
Q: How does the system work? What are the benefits?
A: CapLinked is a collaborative platform for making business transactions simple and secure. While Fortune 500 companies have the option of using expensive virtual data room services such as Intralinks, startups and other middle-to-lower-market companies haven’t had an affordable platform designed to help them manage transactions. That’s where CapLinked comes in.
TechCrunch covered our recently announced partnership with Startup America:
CapLinked’s platform includes private workspaces where entrepreneurs and investors can share fundraising documents and manage other transactions, as well as a network tools for connecting the two groups can meet. Now startups who are enrolled in Startup America will now get access to the company’s premium features, says CEO Eric Jackson. Those tools include workspace activity reports, multiple workspace administrators, the ability to create additional workspaces, plus more tools for networking with investors.
PandoDaily reported that online accelerator Wahooly has chosen CapLinked to help them manage due diligence and investor reporting for their startups:
Wahooly is a service that gives actual startup equity to influential people in exchange for their social media marketing services. That might sound like a recipe for legal disaster, but today the company took a step toward bringing further legitimacy to it’s platform. The company has teamed up with financial services startup CapLinked to help the company perform due diligence, without the hassle of face-to-face meetings.
