CapLinked, a Manhattan Beach, California-based social online platform that connects companies, advisors, and investors completed a $525,000 angel funding round.

Co-founded in January 2010 by CEO Eric Jackson and CFO and COO Christopher Grey, a former PayPal Vice President, CapLinked provides a collaborative platform for entrepreneurs, private investors and advisors to find each other, build relationships, and transact business.
Launched in October, the service currently has more than 2,100 companies and 1,000 investors on the platform, and $800m in potential deals.
The platform helps companies, advisors, and investors connect each other, build relationships, make private investments, and manage the process of capital raising, due diligence, closings, and reporting to make private investments.



  • CapLinked is introducing DealRocket, a new tool to help streamline the process of raising capital. It is designed to enable companies to make their private deal room available to over 1,000 qualified, professional investors including venture capitalists, angels, private equity firms, and hedge funds. Companies can elect to enroll their deal room in DealRocket, making it visible to the professional investors participating in the program. The company expects to expand DealRocket to 10,000 professional investors by the end of the year.
