“Our Angel group has been able to organize and evaluate investment opportunities using Dealum, and what's more is that it has been easy enough to use that all of our members have begun using the platform. This is a great relief for our group's leadership as it enables us to operate in a more efficient and scalable manner.

In the early days, the Dealum customer support team was extremely attentive to our needs to help us get broken in to using the platform.”

“We were looking for a "one-stop-shop" that would enable more efficient deal flow management tool, organization communication, and member engagement. We chose Dealum, and we can now see more communication and engagement in our group.

Dealum has many great features, but the application voting and internal comment section for every application have been extremely effective for our screening committee members to provide input in real time.

We feel comfortable with our choice as the ease of use, and smooth onboarding have been positive experiences. Also, the customer service is top-notch — all our questions are answered expeditiously and thoroughly.”

“Dealum is a better and more flexible platform than others we have tried. It can be personalized to our unique deal flow process, and the better interface has helped our members to be much more active on the platform.

Deal review is now so much faster and has a higher participation rate, thanks to Dealum’s smart design. Our members appreciate how easy it is to use. Also, startups have given us better feedback about our submission process.”

“We're liking the simple, intuitive design; the control our angel group has with combining a pipeline with due diligence; the ability to have member-only conversations centered within a single company's page; and the ability to see which other members are interested have all stood out. It's a big step forward from our previous platform.”

“Dealum helps us to manage our yearly 500 companies' deal flow while standardizing and organizing information. Our members are now more engaged and active, accessing company information through the platform instead of requesting documents separately.

The clarity and information structure on the application form has made our work so much easier and more efficient.

Overall, I highly recommend Dealum to anyone looking for a comprehensive and user-friendly platform to manage their deal flow and company information.”

“The feedback from our members has been entirely positive that they find it easy to navigate and great for communications with investee companies and each other. We are now using it for all our member communications and events and all our potential investee companies must register etc. The consistency of summaries on the companies and speed of absorbing information is making it so much easier to assess new opportunities.”

“For 20 years I have used various CRM systems to manage my sales leads. The systems have not been impressive. Becoming a business angel investor I learned about deal flow management systems. The first two systems I met were just as bad as the old CRM systems but Dealum is very good to manage the deal flow funnel and very good for a group (large or small) of angels to review and prioritize potentials deals. I was also impressed by the software's ‘look & feel’ and the ability to use Dealum live at pitch events – on a mobile phone. This makes it fast to give feedback to the startups and to group investor by interest. So now investors are actually using the deal flow management system.”

“Dealum has helped our groups move into the future having added ease and efficiency to our processes to share and syndicate deals. It has also added a new layer of transparency for our Angel members.”

sTARTUp Day, the biggest business festival in the Baltics, found a powerful ally in Dealum for managing their pitching competition

“Dealum has increased the frequency of member engagement by a factor of 3 with more than 60% of members accessing the platform 4 or more times per month. Using our prior platform, members accessed the site on average less than 12 times per year!

The ability to communicate, and indeed effectively interact with each deal has improved information flow, and more importantly, resulted in faster processing of deals and shorter time required from initial receipt to a final decision on investment.”
Jeffrey LangDesert Angels

“There are many benefits, but the most important is to maintain a permanent online record of the companies we have considered and our investments, plus other information relevant to our activities. Having a structured environment tailored to Angel investors is a major plus over generic cloud storage options. In other words, it provides an organizational ‘memory’ for our Angel group, which is independent of specific members.”
Gordon CampbellLehigh Valley Angel Investors

“We chose Dealum for its up-to-date software functionality to support our angel investor group. They have been very receptive to our feedback and have used it on the platform development. We have been surprised by the engineering and support team's responsiveness to addressing issues and the quality of the solutions provided.

We are excited about the ability to track our deal flow from start to finish through our process and syndication while knowing our data is secure and will not be monetized or used for any other purposes.”

“It took BAS one year to prepare and decide on a new system and only 2 and a half weeks to onboard on Dealum!

We can already feel the impact this easy to use system has on our members. They immediately start using it (to manage funding rounds, for example) whereas it was almost impossible to have them use our old system. The other good surprise is the reactivity of the Dealum team to our requests. Some changes were made for us in a matter of days!

Thanks to Dealum, a new era has started for BAS, where members are much more aware of what is happening throughout the club.”

“Dealum is wonderful system to manage the deal-flow in a business angel network and a start-up pitch event. The system is very easy to use while being very flexible to adjust to different organizational requirements. At LitBAN we appreciate their proactive approach and ability to suggest improvements to a prospective solution on both architectural and business levels.

“Since ICLUB Global is co-investing only in the deal flow of the top early-stage performance venture fund TA Ventures, our use case is to present the pipeline in the most efficient way. That is why we’ve chosen Dealum as our online platform for over 500 members in 11 countries (EMEA, MENA, APAC). Dealum is easy to use and scale, and we’ve already collected multi-million commitments just online as expected.

Our next step is to grow our angel investors community to several thousand members, and we’re happy to have the Dealum platform as a strategic partner on this journey.”
Yuriy Romanyukha • CEO of ICLUB Global
“Since its implementation, Dealum has become an integral part of our activities as an angel network, and our members love it. We only implemented Dealum 9 months ago, but it enabled us to collaborate more efficiently from the start. Our startup application and screening process are streamlined, and the flow of information is improved. Also, the well-designed event calendar is a great feature for communicating events and enhancing engagement.

Dealum’s design simplicity sets a low entry barrier — even for our more experienced members. As a fast-growing network with 100+ members, we could not imagine working without Dealum anymore.”
Sebastian SchwenkeBusiness Angels Club Berlin-Brandenburg e.V.
“We did extensive research on all the available deal flow management tools on the market. We wanted our network members to be involved in selecting and voting for startups. Also, it was important to customize different parts and facilitate communication, automating processes, and transparency. Dealum was by far the best fit. Now our members interact more and get involved in selecting the startups for our pitching sessions.

Dealum is intuitive and easy to use. Even with lots of features, it is easy to learn and use efficiently by just exploring. What’s more, the support team has always been there to solve any trouble or assist in finding the best solutions for our needs!”
