RateMyInvestor offers the largest available interactive database for startup founders to review and rate their investors. By improving access to information and transparency, RateMyInvestor brings investors and founders closer together and brings balance to the startup ecosystem.
The current funding ecosystem is unbalanced and inefficient. Founders have little information about potential investors, and those investors have no effective tool for managing their own reputation.
RateMyInvestor offers an intuitive platform for founders to share information about their investors, and provide candid insights for future entrepreneurs to benefit from. Investors will be able to interact with founders through a reputation management feature on the platform.
After acquiring Know Your VC, the Sieo team quickly and effectively integrated the established brand of both companies. The logo and website were designed to communicate the user-friendly nature of the platform for both founders and investors.
Partnerships are at the core of the RateMyInvestor growth strategy. While still in its beta phase, RateMyInvestor has already partnered with organizations such as Silicon Valley Bank, Diversity VC, and Pledge LA. The Sieo team focused on generating reviews by connecting with communities of entrepreneurs. This organic outreach drove significant early interest to the website. Through careful research, the team developed a nuanced understanding of how investors would stand to benefit from RateMyInvestor. This market validation helped inform the product development and monetization strategy.
Sieo coordinated a full-stack development effort headed by RateMyInvestor’s CTO. This coordination involved developing a beta version of the website so that the platform could be marketed prior to full functionality launching. The Sieo team acted as a pivot between market research, design, product development, and web development.
