Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
CapLinked—the online platform that makes investing in private companies easy, secure, and social—announced today the launch of its new PRO accounts.
CapLinked PRO accounts provide enhanced features for managing a deal and networking with other private investing professionals. The company also announced that its service has surpassed the twin milestones of $20 billion of deal rooms and 100,000 user accounts. Since opening up to the public one year ago, CapLinked has grown by over 5,000% as companies and investors flock to its website to network, manage capital raises and asset sales, and exchange updates.
PRO accounts provide business professionals with a powerful set of features to help them close deals and network with investors, advisors, and entrepreneurs on CapLinked’s site. The enhanced benefits available to PRO subscribers include:
● Tools to allow users to message other CapLinked members outside of their network, including potential investors and promising companies.
● Real-time notifications when a prospect views their deal room.
● Special reports to tell them who’s viewed their personal or company profile.
● The ability to customize their personal profile to include special fields and videos.
● Premium customer support with a 24-hour turnaround guarantee.
The launch of PRO accounts comes as CapLinked continues to grow rapidly. In its brief history, CapLinked has grown to 109,000 user accounts and $22 billion in deal rooms hosted on its site. CapLinked has proven popular in a wide array of industries, including technology, energy, transportation, food & beverage, real estate, and financial services.
Companies use CapLinked’s website to manage the previously cumbersome processes of raising money, networking with new prospects, and handling investor relations after the investment is complete. Accredited and professional investors use CapLinked to review deals, conduct due diligence, and keep track of their portfolio of private investments. Advisors—such as lawyers, consultants, board members, broker dealers, etc.—use CapLinked to receive information, review deals, and network with prospective clients.
“CapLinked PRO accounts take private investing to the next level,” said CEO Eric M. Jackson. “Investing in a private company has always been a tedious process. But CapLinked is changing that by giving companies, investors, and their advisors social tools to connect and get deals done. Managing a capital raise or asset sale has never been easier.”
CapLinked was co-founded by Eric M. Jackson (PayPal's first head of US marketing and author of the book “The PayPal Wars”) and Christopher Grey (former managing director at a subsidiary of Emigrant Bank, the largest privately owned bank in the country), and its financial backers include many members of the so-called “PayPal Mafia.” Investors in CapLinked include Peter Thiel (co-founder of PayPal and the first investor in Facebook), Dave McClure (founding partner of 500 Startups), David Sacks (CEO of Yammer), Joe Lonsdale (co-founder of Palantir Technologies), David Anderson (managing partner of 7th Rig), and Stephan Paternot (co-founder of TheGlobe.com).
CapLinked PRO accounts are available on the company’s website on a $39 per month subscription basis. Upgrading to a PRO account is optional, and CapLinked will continue to offer its basic accounts free-of-charge.
