Foundersuite’s Investor CRM has always been a great tool for managing a fundraise. We’ve now made it even better by solving one of the most painful parts of raising capital:  finding the right investors.We are pleased to introduce  Investor Search + Filter, a new product in Foundersuite.
Wait, what’s this? 
Built using AngelList's API, Investor Search + Filter is a fast, visual, and intuitive way to find relevant investors for your startup. With a few quick keystrokes, we generate a set of investors who are interested in your industry, and we help you filter the list down based on location and other criteria. You can then add them to your CRM.

 

How do I use it? 

It’s easy. First signup / login to your Foundersuite account and click on the “Raising Capital” tab.Next, click the Investor Search button and start typing the name of your industry. Give it a second— let the Foundersuite elves find some matches— then pick the industry name that most closely matches your field. (Note: because of the way AngelList’s API works, you must use one of the suggested industry titles.)

Next, load a few batches, sort by location, and start browsing investor profiles. A handy tip is to hover over an investor’s name, and then click the LinkedIn, Blog, Facebook or Twitter icon to learn more about him/her. Get to know them via their online profiles.

 
Finally, when you’ve found an investor who seems like a fit, click “ Add to CRM” and we’ll automagically import him/her into your Foundersuite Investor CRM.
 

Cool. How much does it cost? $1,000? $10,000? One million dollars?
It's free, baby! No charge, and you can run as many searches as you want (but no robots, please). Foundersuite users with a Free Account can import 10 investors into their Investor CRM; Pro Plan members can import up to 30; and Team Plan members can import an  unlimited number of investors.
