Over a year ago, we branded our fundraising tools for startups as Launchpad in order to differentiate from the other main project we were working on. Since then, Launchpad has evolved quite a bit based on feedback from the community, market trends, and our positioning as a business to help as many founders as possible to spend as little time as possible fundraising.
Today, to reflect our evolution and progress, we are delighted to tell you that we are relaunching our startup fundraising offering under a new brand, Navigator. Founders can head over to navigator.vc to find focused and relevant content and services exclusively around fundraising.
To mark the occasion, we are launching on Product Hunt – check us out there, join the conversation, and access a special offer for Product Hunters.
Even more exciting than a new brand, website and launch on Product Hunt are the new features we’ve released:
Search: Our smart investor search algorithm scans a global database of VCs and angels, and rank orders the ones we think are most likely to invest in you, based on their investment history.
Track (preview): Our visual investor CRM tool helps you manage your investor outreach, ensuring that no crucial conversations slip through the cracks. Fundraising has enough moving parts as it is, so best to stay organised. Track is in preview at the moment with basic features available to users. But we will be releasing lots of exciting things in the near future.
Assess: Get expert feedback on your overall investor proposition from our team of assessors, along with an objective rating/score indicating your investment readiness level. Over 80% of top-scoring startups go on to raise funding successfully so the score and report can be a strong signal for you to see where you stand. Assess helps you get into the best possible shape to complete your fundraising round.
