Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
CapLinked—the online platform that makes investing in private companies easy, secure, and social—announced today the launch of its new TEAM accounts. Designed specifically for people collaborating inside an organization, TEAM accounts make it easier to manage deals, handle investor relations, and network with private investing professionals. CapLinked also announced that it has surpassed 120,000 user profiles on its online network, an increase of 6,000% since the site was made available to the public in February 2011.
The latest premium account from CapLinked is designed to help serious users close deals faster and coordinate transactions across a group of people. TEAM accounts also allow multiple administrators, which helps make syndicating and managing deals with multiple parties simpler. The enhanced benefits available to TEAM subscribers include:
- Upgraded accounts for up to 10 team members
- Multiple administrators for deal rooms and investor relations
- Unlimited number of deal rooms and invitations
- Engagement reports from Activity Tracker that track views, downloads, invites, and sign-ins
- 24/7 dedicated customer service representative
The launch of TEAM accounts comes as CapLinked continues to grow rapidly. Besides surpassing 120,000 user profiles, CapLinked now sports over $25 billion in private deal rooms hosted on its site. CapLinked is used 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. The service is growing in popularity for private equity, venture capital, angel investments, and other types of private transactions.
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 TEAM accounts are available on the company’s website on a $199 per month subscription basis. Upgrading to a TEAM account is optional, and CapLinked will continue to offer its basic accounts free-of-charge.
