Identify "influencer" investors to boost
fundraising and investment for growth
Searching for, reaching out to, and building relationships with investors a significant amount of time and effort, particularly in recent years as the time between VC fundraises has decreased and as a multitude of private equity and venture capital funds are overwhelming investors.
As a result, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to find investors and raise capital.
NetworkBD is a B2B tool, based on academic research, that takes a network perspective to identify “influencer” investors who are well-connected, influential, and able to attract additional investors and partners.
Being more strategic in outreach efforts and targeting these "influencer” investors can unlock unlock network effects that reduce fundraising efforts.
Using a list of prospective and existing investors to analyze, sourced either from own databases or from accessible investor databases, NetworkBD gathers data using publicly available data sources.
NetworkBD utilizes publicly available data – press releases, public LinkedIn profiles, and investor databases of previous investments –to map the network of relationships and strength of the connections between investors.
Based on the information gathered, the ideal investor profile metrics, and the network connections between investors, NetworkBD runs over 10,000 simulations in an advanced agent-based network model.
The results of the NetworkBD analysis provide a ranking of the prospective investors who can generate network effects to accelerate fundraising, as well as how existing investors can be leveraged to reach these prospects.
