Investors:Create Your Own Investment Group Online

To facilitate greater interaction between investors, FundingUniverse has created the Investor Group tool. You now have the ability to create your own online investment group. If you are part of an angel group, invite members from your group to look at deals. If you are a solo investor who occasionally invests with partners, create a group to look at and discuss deals.

Use this tool to invite other accredited angels to look at dealflow. You can discuss your interest with all of your potential investment partners online, without contacting the entrepreneur until you are ready. Additional collaboration tools include voting, message posting and email.

It is easy to create your online investment group. Simply, log in to your investor account on FundingUniverse. In the upper right hand corner of your account home page there is a section that says “Create New Investor Group.” Click on the button. You can select a group name and send out invitations to the people who you want in your group. After your invitees have registered, you are all set to begin looking at dealflow as an online investment group.

We hope this new tool will help you locate deals more efficiently. If you have any suggestions please let us know. We are anxious to know how we can help you find the deals you are looking for.
