In June we launched Dealflow with the goal of making investment deals more accessible to all investors and common folk. Today we're rolling out significant improvements in this area to simplify the process of getting access to deals. 

This guide will walk you through the process of getting started as an investor (looking to invest) and entrepreneurs (seeking to raise funds).

1) Creating your Investor Profile

Upon logging into your BEAM account, get started by creating an investor profile from the left navigation menu.

Tap on 'Add Investor Profile' from the left menu on the web or mobile app to get started.

Specify the amount you're keen on potentially investing as well as what you're looking for in deals that are pitched to you.

2) Receiving Deal Proposals

Upon creating your investor profile, our system will automatically match fellow entrepreneurs that are raising capital directly with you. 

Should they send in a request to raise funds from you, you will receive a chat notification as follows:

You can then choose to respond to the person should you be interested in the deal.

3) Responding to Proposals

Simply tap/click on the chat bubble to view more details on the deal and to reply to the entrepreneur should you be keen on taking the correspondence to the next level.

Tap on reply to reach out to the person who is pitching

You're done! Our team will be working hard to improve the matching of investors and entrepreneurs to ensure a consistent stream of deals that are of high quality.

Important Note: We strongly recommend doing all the necessary due diligence prior to investing in any startups/early stage companies/SMEs.
