Solutions for Any Type of Capital Raise
A Seamless Investor Journey
Whether investors start their journey by clicking an ‘Invest Now’ link or by receiving a custom email invitation, DealMaker leverages a proprietary question flow that allows investors to complete their subscription agreement in minutes as opposed to hours.
DealMaker digitizes and breaks down the subscription agreement into its core components to ensure investors are only answering the questions relevant to them. This helps to guarantee that investments are secured at the time of interest and with no deficiencies. Companies raising on DealMaker have significantly lower costs, as much as 90% less, due to the elimination of document review and back-and-forth.
Digital Payments, AML and Accredited Investor Verification
The investors’ journey doesn’t end when they sign the subscription agreement. DealMaker has the most robust suite of payment options, including credit card and secure bank-to-bank transfers, to allow investors to pay for their investments immediately and using the methods they prefer. Digital payments increase conversion rates and average investment amounts on every type of deal by removing friction in the payment process.
DealMaker also has automated AML built into the platform – a feature that’s crucial for any marketed raise, including Reg A+ and Crowdfunding, but also anytime investments are accepted from unknown investors. For 506c raises, DealMaker also has Accredited Investor Verification built into the platform, eliminating painful back-and-forth to ensure investors are verified.
In addition to ensuring that the investor has a seamless journey, Digital payments, AML and Accredited Investor Verification efficiently remove the pain of managing payments, background checks and verification from the company raising capital.
A Complete CRM for the Raise
Raising capital can be an arduous process, particularly when it comes to managing back-and-forth and investor follow-up to get the deal closed. DealMaker eliminates that pain by providing a full deal CRM to all companies raising on its platform.
DealMaker offers real-time data on investor progress and payments, automated reminders to drive conversion, contact information and interaction data, as well as tagging and notes to manage investor interactions and follow-ups. DealMaker also offers full payment reconciliation to ensure all books and records are accurate and companies using its technology can close quickly. Companies using DealMaker are able to maximize conversion on their deals and close their raises up to 75% faster.
Additional Benefits of DealMaker

- Shareholder Engagement and Management – The DMEngage shareholder management and engagement tool allows companies to share information, news releases and documents with current and potential investors and stakeholders before, during and after the raise.
