Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
CapLinked—the online platform that makes private investing easy, secure, and social—announced today it is offering 50GB of free storage space to all its users. By comparison, DropBox only offers 32GB of free space to its pro users, and half of that to its free account holders. Apple’s iCloud and collaboration platform Box.net offer just 5GB to non-paying customers.
CapLinked, by contrast, is offering 50GB completely free of charge to all users who refer the site to at least 10 contacts. That’s more space than DropBox, iCloud, and Box combined!
CapLinked is a professional network that gives private companies, investors, and their advisors tools to connect, collaborate on a capital raise or asset sale, and exchange updates after an investment has been made. Over 120,000 users have registered for CapLinked since its public launch early last year, and they’ve used the site to create $25 billion worth of deals in a broad variety of industries.
“CapLinked makes collaboration between companies and their employees, investors, and advisors easier,” said CEO Eric M. Jackson. “By providing our users with an industry leading 50GB of free storage space, we’re making it even simpler to share important information in a private and secure manner.”
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 a many members of the “PayPal Mafia.” Publicly disclosed investors 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).
