About the Company: neonVest supercharges founders’ networking. Think of LinkedIn 2.0. neonVest's SaaS platform enables early-stage founders, anywhere in the world, to get direct access to top-tier VCs and successful founders for 1:1 video conversations, helping them build their networks and strengthen their operational knowledge and, hopefully, influencing their ability to scale. It uses data to connect early-stage founders to experts in VC and successful operators for one-on-one, 30- to 60-minute video conversations. These conversations are primarily for mentorship and professional networking, and they can massively help founders scale up in many ways outside of just capital. neonVest's mission is to level the playing field by giving less well-networked founders the opportunity to turn VC from a relationship-driven game to a merit-driven one.
