Online venture capital funding platform FundersClub is set to introduce new features to its portfolio platform. The company will add three new tools to its technical system to allow its portfolio companies to experience better functionality and workflow through the platform.
FundersClub’s effort, Catalyst, differentiates itself by focusing on founding teams rather than just founders. The first three tools set to be released are Fire bot, Standup and Reports. Fire bot, available today, enables non-technical team-members to report bugs on GitHub by simply sending an email. The hope is to save engineers from the hell that is random workflow disruptions from Jimmy, the well-intentioned but ill-informed business development associate. Standup and Reports will be released in the coming weeks. Standup will summarize GitHub activity in advance of common weekly standups, effectively vocalized progress reports. Reports will serve a similar function by sending weekly engineering activity metrics to Slack. FundersClub’s previous engineering project was Network Search, an attempt to leverage its large community to deliver network effects to founders and investors.
