THE INVESTMENT PLATFORM & STARTUP
DIGITAL COMMUNITY POWERED BY DATA & A.I
WHERE WE DIGITIZE INVESTOR RELATIONS AND WHERE UNDERESTIMATED FOUNDERS WITH NO WARM INTROS, ELITE NETWORK OR IVY-LEAGUE CONNECTIONS, GET VIRTUAL ACCESS TO,
AND PARTNER WITH, EXPERTS, TOP INDUSTRY ACCELERATORS & INVESTORS.
REPRESENTATION HAS NEVER BEEN
SO REWARDING. AND SO RELEVANT.
We're getting dead serious about inclusion, exploring alternatives to the 'warm intro' and we're doing something about it. We're not an 'inclusive' hashtag, a movement or a cause; however while we're ardent supporters of these campaigns, we're making intentional efforts a step beyond, by actively distributing the odds that outlier founders succeed at funding and representation, by putting startup teams directly infront of those who write the checks.
DYVVYD is an intentional AI-driven digital platform whose creators believe in the power of diversity in tech, equality in representation and the funding of innovation that directly reflects the society we live in and its impact on creative problem solving through technology.
Inclusion fuels innovation; the data proves it. We are powering the movement for creative problem solving by the funding of exceptional founders and overlooked startups.
We are excited to be one of the first dedicated platforms using AI with a narrow focus on digital & virtual-access to power creative funding in the dual startup and venture capital industry.
WE HAVE RECEIVED LOTS OF INTEREST AS WE BUILD OUT THIS REVOLUTIONARY A.I POWERED MARKETPLACE TO HELP POWER ACCESS FOR UNDERESTIMATED TEAMS & THE INVESTORS THAT WANT TO FIND/FUND THEM

AUGMENTED REALITY [AR]
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE [AI]
With a wholistic approach, we are sector agnostic with an industry focus on true representation.
The true measure of a broader 'funding-worldview' is when ideas outside of our experience, scope or perspective are given a chance to see the light.
To be more effective at positioning our investor and founder community for success within our ecosystem, we're clustering and segmenting each VC firm & startup team per industry and funding track to allow for streamlined access to investor pitch sessions, professional-partner mentorship sit-downs, data aggregation and community building.
TRACKS VIA INDUSTRY & FUNDING LEVEL
Virtual and real time connections are not just 'now' but are the future. Since its launch in April 2019, DYVVYD has consistently provided a secure virtual process for viewers to engage with each other in real time.
Connect with investors in secure, intimate online rooms with VCs curated for you via industry level and funding track. Depending on your funding goals, plan ahead and pick the day of the week you are available, establish whether there is an investor session that matches your criteria scheduled, RSVP for pre-vetting and access the session with 4 or less founders allowing you an intimate session for Q&A, live pitch sessions or mentorship.
PITCH REVIEW & FEEDBACK
Review curated and pre-vetted 3-5 minute interactive pitch videos which allow you to add video notes, ask questions, request feedback or prompt action - directly in video. All stats are recorded/captured in real time and provided to founders for analysis and learning opportunities.
