Here are some fun facts about the amazing country of New Zealand:

  • Only 5% of NZ’s population is human- the rest are animals
  • Four seasons in one day is not that unusual
  • Unlike Australia, New Zealand does not have any dangerous or poisonous animals (with the one tiny exception of the Katipo Spider)
  • In NZ you will hear the word “kiwi” quite a lot – on one hand, there is the native flightless bird and the kiwi fruit, but it is also used as a slang term for a New Zealander
  • New Zealand was the first major nation to have universal suffrage – In 1893 it became legal for all male and female citizens of New Zealand to vote
  • Auckland is the largest Polynesian city in the world and is also known as “the city of sails”. It has more boats per capita than anywhere else in the world
  • New Zealand is a plastic nation – many personal financial transactions are made with a card – credit or otherwise. Most shops offer EFTPOS (similar to the UK Chip and Pin which appeared two years later) and cash is seen less and less. So ensure you bring a credit card to NZ if possible.

Feature Spotlight: Customized Reporting

Investor reporting is the single most important factor when it comes to great customer service in the venture industry. Whether you are a large venture firm, small angel group, or a funded company – how you communicate what you’ve done with someone’s money will either make or break you when it is time to raise again…and you will raise again.

Reporting is something no one really loves to do. Mainly because it requires us to go back through multiple systems to track down what deals we looked at, who we funded and how, and then get those companies to actually report back to us in a timely manner (see post on automatic portfolio tracking). Then once we find all of that information, we have to put it into some system for building an actual report that we then send out to our investors. No bueno.

Because Venture360 is a complete application to exit platform, our clients already have access to all of the data needed to report back to their investors providing the highest level of service possible. Although our complete investor profiles provide account information accessibility anytime, anywhere to investors – we also know that sending out summary reports are a great way to communicate with investors and provide the best service possible.

Our clients are only a few clicks away from populating beautiful reports for their investors with the data they need – all in one place.

The is one of the many features our clients get FREE access to with an account prior to May 1, 2016. Go ahead and enjoy all that free time you have now that you use Venture360.

Feature Spotlight: Automatic Portfolio Reporting

There are some pretty fantastic tools out there to help track company metrics, but you know what the real problem is?

GETTING THEM TO ACTUALLY DO IT!

Oh sure, you can add it to the terms and have penalties for noncompliance, but that doesn’t really work. Then there is the issue of validating what information you do get – good luck with that.

These are the real problems we are solving here at Venture360 with our proprietary data aggregation API that sources and verifies information on our clients’ portfolio companies without anyone lifting a finger. Then we take that information along with all of the portfolio information we are already tracking, and allow our clients to create incredible and customizable reports.

You can continue to chase down your portfolio companies for minimal information, OR you can just click one button in our system that will search hundreds of publicly available data sources for information on your portfolio automatically.

Minds. Blown. Everywhere.
