TheFunded.com passed 3,000 reviews at a record growth rate this week, marking a major growth milestone. We continue to receive strong support emails from CEO's, many of whom wish the site existed earlier and others who are interested in supporting the service. We want to thank every CEO who joins the service and contributes to the site.
UPDATE: It looks like TheFunded.com is being profiled in Entrepreneur Magazine this month.
TheFunded.com has streamlined Membership application review, which now takes less than 24 hours, and the volume of daily applications remains at an all time high. The site still has a backlog of approximately 70 Certified Profiles submitted by venture funds that will be reviewed and launched the week of August 27th.
It is safe to assume that most start-up CEO's and active venture capitalists are reading TheFunded.com, even if just occasionally. Members, please consider the quality, usefulness, and character of your written reviews, as your content is read widely. For example, does the use of superlatives ("the best") and exclamation points ("the best!!!") convey your message effectively"
Also, consider the accuracy of your numerical reviews. Save the one and the five ratings for funds that really deserve them. If Members rate funds in an objective manner, the rating system becomes incredibly valuable to entrepreneurs and may prove to be an early indicator of a fund's success.
TheFunded.com is changing the venture capital fundraising process. Thank you for your contributions, and Enjoy!PRIVATE: Members Only
