New investment: SilkStart, SaaS for membership organizationsPortfolio
All membership organizations I am involved in face the same challenges: how to deliver value to and engage their members, how increase revenues to invest back into their organization and how to do all this on a shoestring budget. Technology can help solve these problems for the millions of associations out there and I am happy to announce an investment in one of the leaders in this space. SilkStart provides membership organizations with a simple SaaS solution that provides a one-stop shop for everything from membership management to event ticketing to social networking features. The product is already used by some leading membership organizations, including the Vancouver Board of Trade, US Asian American Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC, VANTEC and DigiBC, and has received extremely good feed-back in the marketplace.
Daniel Chu and his team are some of the hungriest entrepreneurs I have seen in a long time and I am sure that they will run with this company long and far – excited to be part of it going forward!
