I love the UI and it structures updates in predefined blocks that you can modify (e.g. a block for Monthly Burn, Achievements, Asks, etc...). I also like how it has a clean yet simple CRM simple that let's you group contacts and easily send out updates to the right people (without the overkill bloat of email marketing software like HubSpot). Simple, clean, and to the point.

Just my normal email client! I draft them in Notion and then copy-paste over.

I know Carta has a feature for this but I have never really seen the utility in it beyond just... writing an email.

Hey Jon,

I just launched a tool for this called Kalipr: https://www.kalipr.io/

Alternatives are PaperStreet, Visible.VC, Invesotry and a few others. Happy to help if you want to chat :)

Welcome to the community!

What led you to build Visible.vc, and what's your favorite thing about it for simplifying sending investor updates?

We built it as an internal tool at a venture fund I was part of and spun it out as a profibale bootstrapped business.

My favorite part are the integrations we offer to automate. e.g. you can connect to Stripe or QuickBooks to pull data automatically and it makes it look beautiful.

That's awesome, love hearing of internal tools getting turned into a real product.
