Investors, Financing, Venture Capital & Funding Opportunities of Startups

This evening, actually 2am this morning, we at Bizak are starting to role out the investor side of our database. This means investors and corporations can finally view and compare startups within our database.  Different from the startup side, investors can actually see specific data, web analytics and financial data for all startups who elect to have their information published.  

Right now, as of 2am Tuesday morning, investors can subscribe to our XML feed and view and compare benchmarks to startups.  All of the investor applications will be completed by Wednesday afternoon.  The features that still need to be added are the profiles (contact information, bio, links, etc.) for startups and the ability to view and sort the top ten projects according to each sort.  A sort consists of Industry, Business Type and Revenue Source.  For example, you can view the top ten startups who are in the Internet industry, operate a business network and have a subscription model.  

As for the XML feeds this allows investors, venture capital firms and corporations to integrate our data into their platform for both internal use and database access for clients.  Examples of the data included in the XML schemas can be seen below.  Both of the XML files are being modified a bit more and contact phone and URL will be integrated into the startup schemas. Each subscriber has their own unique URL which returns data in XML format using the below schemas.

For additional information about the investor side of Bizak please view the video below the XML data.

Financial Analysis – Bizak’s Root

August 27, 2008 Leave a comment

Bizak’s idea is rooted in the financial analysis and EPS of public companies. What I’m trying to do is create an average performance metric for startups according to their industry, business type (wiki, blog, etc.) and revenue source (Adsense, consulting, etc.) and any and all combination of the three. Bizak computes (and creates benchmarks) for visitors, revenues, revenues per visitor (RPV), costs, CPV, earnings, EPV and valuation. This will allow startups to view their performance to their industry, other industries and possible more importantly the ability to research what industries, types and revenues are good business models.

Leveraging our tools with and/or partnering with investment firms?  A partnership includes the integration of our data/benchmarks with the investment firm (via XML feed) in return increasing everyone’s exposure to internet startups.

XML Data Feed – Benchmarks, Startup Profiles, Web Analytics & Financials

August 25, 2008 Leave a comment

Bizak announced last week that it will be launching its investor side (phase 3 of 3) during the first week of September 2008.  This will allow investors to view startups seeking funding, compare their performance to competitors, and analyze the Bizak benchmarks.  

In addition to the online access we’re also offering investors the ability to stream our data directly to their database via an XML data feed.  This gives investors the ability to have a live feed of the most current benchmarks and the latest startups to join Bizak.  The private and unique XML feed can be integrated into your existing database, built into your desktop or simply added to your RSS reader – XML can be fully customized for your needs.     

For sales information please contact Tom O’Keefe via Bizak.

Bizak Video Tutorials & Video Screenshots

Below are a few video tutorials and video screenshots of Bizak and the Bizak benchmarks.  Click on the links below for the video demonstrations.

Investment Firms & Online Startups

Phase 3 of Bizak is set to launch soon.  Phase 2 consisted of the industry benchmarks (see video) and phase 3 opens up Bizak to investors who want to invest in internet startups.  In addition to the average benchmarks (that startups can view) investors will be able to view and compare the analytics for specific startups.  With Bizak, investors can now evaluate the earnings and valuation of startups in comparison to their competitors and industry leaders.  

Before we launch the investor side of Bizak we’re evaluating a few ideas that will benefit both investors and startups.  One of those is partnering with a large corporation, VC or investment firm who will have exclusive access to Bizak and the stream of web startups.  At this moment we’re discussing this exclusivity and invite any investment or venture capital firm to contact us (617-947-8071, email) if interested.
