Keiretsu Forum and ProSeeder Technologies Announce Launch of Keiretsu Global Platform
NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Keiretsu Forum, the largest angel investment group in the world, announced a strategic partnership with ProSeeder Technologies. They will launch Keiretsu Global, the first of its kind global platform enabling their US and International Keiretsu chapters to share deal flow and collective knowledge across its accredited membership base. The platform is also integrated with Keiretsu Capital, a new venture fund, which co-invests with the member network.
Keiretsu Forum made the decision to adopt ProSeeder’s deal flow management solution because the secure platform offers a robust feature set that goes beyond anything Keiretsu had used previously. Keiretsu Forum Mid-Atlantic along with the Pacific Northwest and Northern California Regions were instrumental in driving this much needed transition. Keiretsu embraced the platform as a fully-integrated solution which includes deal flow management, collaboration, due diligence, investment tracking, member relations, communications and event management.
Keiretsu Forum’s Mid-Atlantic Area President Howard Lubert said, “The transition to the ProSeeder platform creates a unified environment for all 34 Keiretsu Forum Chapters around the world and, for the first time, the promise of all 1400+ Keiretsu Forum Members being able to participate in global deal flow is a reality. Creating the ‘Keiretsu Global’ system will truly foster network-wide collaboration.”
Randy Williams, Keiretsu’s Founder and CEO commented, “At Keiretsu Forum, we have companies that present to one chapter, and then go on to present and receive funding from multiple chapters and regions. ProSeeder will enable easier and more efficient collaboration between our global chapters, and add tremendous value to both our members and companies seeking funding.”
ProSeeder’s Founder Ken Gatz shared Randy’s enthusiasm, “We are extremely excited to be working with Keiretsu Forum. They have great due diligence practices and are rapidly growing in membership and chapters. This partnership with Keiretsu Forum exemplifies the aim of ProSeeder to assist organizations by fostering collaboration and investment efficiency in ways that were not available until now.”
The Keiretsu Global Platform will be officially unveiled at the Keiretsu Forum Angel Capital Expo in Mountain View, CA on Thursday, November 20th, 2014. Both organizations are looking ahead to a mutually beneficial partnership for many years to come.
