Visibility of your deal room, deal room members and companies in the deal room

Who can see my deal room on Dealum?

Your deal room is visible to people who approach you using the company or member application link of your deal room. They can correspondingly apply to your deal room with a company profile, or join your deal room by becoming a member of it.

Your deal room is also visible to those whom you have invited to apply with a company profile or join as a member.

If you have shared the link to your deal room profile, anyone with that link can also see overview of your deal room.

When you have activated deal room discoverability, companies whose profiles match with your deal room’s interests might also see your deal room among suggestions of deal rooms to apply to.

Companies can never see any content of your deal room. They can only see and answer application form and due diligence questions you have asked from them, see and reply to chat messages your members have sent them, see your deal room events you have invited them to (without seeing the participants list) and see funding round information you have decided to share with them.

Your deal room is not discoverable through any search engines or searchable on the platform.

Who can see (the profiles of) my deal room members?

Visibility inside the deal room
Deal room admins (members who have full access to deal room settings) can control which member groups can see the list of all deal room members together with their profiles and contact details. You can read more about how it can be configured here.

Members in member groups that do not have access to deal room’s members list can still see the names of other deal room members who comment on deals, mark funding interest in deals (unless they choose to remain anonymous) or send chat messages to companies. In that case, their names are visible next to their comment/message/funding interest.

Visibility on the platform
Your deal room members are not searchable by companies or other deal rooms and their members. If your deal room member is also a member of some other deal rooms, then the members of those deal rooms might be able to see information about that investor’s investment interests and background and his/her contact details.

If the member has a personal deal room and gets a subscription for it, he/she is able to make his/her deal room visible to companies on the platform and can receive applications from them.

If you share a funding round with other deal rooms, you can configure for each funding round how much information about your deal room members who have indicated investment interest in the deal is visible in other deal rooms the funding round is shared with.

If a funding round is made visible to the company, company members can also see the names or names and contact info of your deal room members who are participating in the funding round if configured so.

Who can see companies that apply to my deal room?

Companies that apply to your deal room are not searchable by other investors or deal rooms on the platform. If the company has submitted applications to several organizations (e.g. different funds, investor groups) that use Dealum for managing their deal flow, their applications are visible to all those organizations (each organization can only see the application/dataset that was submitted specifically to them).

If a company’s profile matches with the criteria (interests) of some deal rooms that have made themselves visible to companies on the platform, the company can see those deal rooms under their profile as recommendations. The company is able to submit applications to recommended deal rooms.

Each company also has a short shareable company page (with a link) which can be shared with any external parties by the company itself or any members of your deal room or other deal rooms who have access to a company’s application. Shareable company page link can be found by choosing ‘Share’ from the 'All actions' menu of a company application.
