How It Works

For Investors

OmniValley Provides a platform for investors to find the most relevant connections with other investors and founders. Investors are able to search through investors using key data like check size and industry and location, then add other investors to their watch list or reach out right away. Additionally OmniValley offers a double opt-in request system for startup members to request introductions to investors. Investor members can also help their portfolio companies by sponsoring them on OmniValley and allowing them more access to the investor side of the isle.

Sponsoring Startups

Some of our investor members like to help their existing portfolio of companies by sponsoring their premium membership on OmniValley. This lets their startups get access to the investor side of the sites and gives them introduction requests to use.

Purchase Sponsorship Package

First you'll need navigate to the sponsorship page in the right sidebar to purchase a package of sponsorships.

Add or Claim an Existing Startup

Search for your the startup you would like to sponsor. If a representative of that startup has already added it you can request to become a shared owner of the startup. If the startup has not yet been added you can add it, then when a representative of that startup joins they can request shared ownership from you over the startup profile.

Sponsor Your Companies

After adding your companies you'll see them appear on the sponsors page. Add sponsorships to your companies. Each sponsorship will grant all representatives of that company the ability to send three concurrent intro requests out to other investors. These intro requests refresh after a week of inaction or when they are responded to. So an active startup representative has a lot of chances to make strategic introductions without the ability to send en masse.

How It Works

For Startups

OmniValley Provides a platform for Startups Representative and founders to showcase their startups to OmniValley's exclusive network of investor. Additionally Premium startup members or those whose company has been sponsored from the investors side, are able to search through investors using key data like check size. After a startup identifies a relative connection they can then request a connection with that investor through OmniValley's proprietary system. OmniValley handles the soft introduction for you.
