What is VentureFund.io?
VentureFund.io is a data-driven platform for startup founders to directly connect with top early stage investors by sharing real-time access to their software/app’s internal growth data. No need to pitch investors, founders focus on growing their startup while letting their data do the pitching. The platform is 100 percent free.
“Grow, don’t pitch” is our motto and we believe that access to capital should be based solely on merit and should not be limited by gender, ethnicity, geographic location or any other selection bias. Traction trumps everything!
Why did you build VentureFund.io? What problem are you taking on?
With the ever increasing number of new startups launching and an increasing amount of internal KPI data that can be used to more accurately determine performance, VentureFund.io has put in place the infrastructure to allow startups and investors to connect with one another around that data for the purposes of enabling and monitoring investments.

Founders love us because…
Raising capital is a full-time job and takes founders away from growing their startup. VentureFund.io enables founders to connect and privately share their real-time growth data from sources including Google Analytics, Mixpanel, Stripe, Braintree etc. with the investors that they choose. No need to pitch investors, focus on growing your startup and let your data do the pitching. VentureFund.io is a free, powerful resource.
Investors love us because…
We are now in a data-driven fundraising environment.

Early growth is a great indicator of product/market demand. VentureFund.io is a free, powerful resource.
