Launchpad Venture Group is an angel investment group — an assembly of active investors who cooperate in making investments in early-stage businesses. Tech-Tamer built a members-only area of the site based on the Drupal framework, which provides secure login, member account management and extensive data management capabilities. We also created a custom import routine that pulls information from Launchpad’s internal database into the Drupal site. As a result, Launchpad members can now track Launchpad’s multi-stage screening and investment processes for each company Launchpad considers, as well as browse a directory listing of the skills and capabilities of their fellow members.
In addition, to improve the entrepreneur application process, Tech-Tamer added additional capabilities to the Drupal backend, which now permits entrepreneurs to register on the site, to draft, edit and submit Launchpad’s detailed application questionnaire, and to upload related documents.
