There are many networking and discussion web sites devoted to encouraging founders and entrepreneurs to discuss business, innovation, and ideas. Some of these sites even encourage investors to participate. Nainer is the ONLY web site which proactively connects Founders, Investors, and Industry Experts based on their indicated interest areas bringing together the startup team to launch a business.
Registering on Nainer is not an exclusive agreement. Nainer wants you to start your business any way you can. If you find an Investor though other means after registering a project on Nainer, we have not participated in that transaction and there would be no fee earned by, or due to,Nainer.
Nainer does not presently offer services to facilitate the structuring of, or transferring of, funds between Investors and Founders. It is up to the Investor and Founder to negotiate the form and method of their finance package.
It is not uncommon for new businesses to have multiple investors. For this reason, Nainer also offers the capability for multiple Investors to become part of a Founder's project team.
Nainer strongly encourages members to link their Nainer profile to their LinkedIn account. This provides the best way for other members to get more familiar with you and your experience and talents.
Nainer understands that business is multifaceted. Once you have registered with Nainer as a Founder, Investor, or Industry Expert, you can add additional sub accounts as the other roles.
Nainer matches its members based on the data and preferences in your profile. It stands to reason that the more complete your profile data, the more relevant and successful matches Nainer will show you. That just works better for you. Some data in your profile is not used for matches, but is still vital for demographic analysis, again, all with the goal of making Nainer work better for you.
As an Investor, or Industry Expert, you can create multiple searches with differing criteria and interest areas. Each saved search will display those projects which match the search criteria. You can also, of course, browse the complete project listing or use the Instant Search feature to display projects which may not match your saved searches.
Because many websites use advertisements to generate revenue, the more time they can get you to spend on their website, the greater the probability you will see an advertisement which interests you, thus making them money. Nainer does not generate revenue from advertisements on our site and so has no interest in you spending your valuable time on our web site. We understand that your time is better spent on more productive endeavors. Although you can always visit Nainer and view your matches on your homepage, we highly encourage you to set up a schedule to receive an email report of projects meeting your preferences.
