Finished MVP!

stephaniejones

I built List of Investor (https://listofinvestor.com/) because currently it's very hard to find right investors for your startup. LoI aggregates data from the web and organize it so that founders can easily find the right investors.

It took me approximately 3 months but I'm finally done building the MVP for LoI. I coded the backend in PHP and the frontend is built using Bootstrap. I'm excited to start marketing for LoI and getting feedback so that I can improve the product more.

    This is amazing! I really love the logo and floating header. Makes me want to stay on the site.

    Someone mentioned this below but I think you should add a filter about check size or what stage they invest it.

    I also think this has huge potential for helping founders raise money. For instance, you can integrate to LinkedIn and show people who their mutual connections to the investors are and let people know who they should reach out to for warm intros. You can provide people a map of connections and processes for a premium price. Right now, most founders put their investors and connections in an airtable or spreadsheet manually. I think this could greatly expedite the process.

      Thank you very much for your feedback. LinedIn integrations sounds great, will definitely look into how I can implement it.

    Just visited the site, seems useful when raising Seed or Series A for founders. Maybe you could add more filters and also the option to see the average investment amount of the investors in their portfolio companies.

      Thanks for the suggestions. Will definitely add more filters and data of their investments.

    Congratulations! Looks great. I especially like the animated Icons in the Hero.

    One minor remark: For me, the "Try now" button feels a bit lost in space. It's quite small and the corresponding text is below the fold. Some suggestions, you could try:

    • make it larger by writing "Try now for free"
    • place it in the top bar instead of the Sign-up button
    • place it below the headline or maybe even below the description

    Not sure about these, but maybe you can play around with it a bit. All the best!
