You should use digital communities or online portals to help you raise capital because that’s what everyone else is doing. Seriously. It’s a numbers game…
In a world where capital seekers and investors are already congregating online to find one another, following your peers into the online fundraising world not only makes sense, it’s a key business imperative.
Private Offerings are Already Happening Online
An IntraLinks M&A survey of over 2400 deal professionals for example, found that 54.5% of buy side and 40% of sell-side interviewees had closed a deal sourced online. Furthermore, 55% of respondents stated that over 25% of their deal flow stemmed from online sourcing while 39% had marketed over five deals on social networks in the last year alone. Ignoring the distribution and reach of online portals can significantly undermine the ability to conduct a successful private placement.
