The DocSend Fundraising Network

We're building a new, data-driven way to connect quality founders to committed VCs.

For Founders

Amplify your VC Outreach

We have spent years digging into what makes a good pitch deck. We look at millions of data points around what decks lead to first meetings and term sheets. Our research is publicly available as part of the DocSend Startup Index.

We are now putting this research to work. If you are a founder, you can use the DocSend Fundraising Network (DFN) complimentary service where we connect top founders raising capital to committed VC funds who can issue term sheets (i.e. lead your round).

The process to apply is really simple. If you are raising a Pre-seed, Seed, or Series A round, send a DocSend link to your pitch deck by following the steps. If your deck meets our quality bar (based on the 100k+ successful decks we’ve seen over the years), we’ll spotlight your deck in our VC newsletter, where vetted investors can request to connect with you. Once a request is made, you can follow up directly with the VC to set up a meeting.

Thanks to the DocSend Fundraising Network’s data-driven framework, they can identify deals that would be a potential fit for us and we can process them like a warm introduction. And it works! They surfaced an amazing opportunity for us, outside of our own network, which we offered to invest in.

For VCs

Get Deal Flow Vetted by DocSend

We run a bi-weekly DocSend Deal Flow newsletter that connects high-quality early-stage founders with the right investors. We focus on quality, not quantity. Based on the number of decks we’ve seen over the years, we are able to put a reasonable quality bar in place.

Each week we’ll round up the best Pre-Seed, Seed, and Series A decks that we see in our network (our average acceptance rate is 20%) and email them to you in a curated list. With just one click, you can directly set up intros with the founders that you’re interested in. And the best part is that the whole process happens via email.

If you are interested in joining and getting access to these new high-quality deals, please email us at [email protected] and we will follow up with more information.
