We launched OpenScout with a belief that the traditional models and relationships in venture scouting did not provide individuals engaged in scouting with the best opportunity for success.
One of the reasons behind this was that a person would typically only scout for one investor or send all of their deal flow to the same very small group of investors they knew personally.
OpenScout looks to change this by allowing Scouts to build the widest possible network or investors that may be interested in the opportunities they are connected to.
To that end we do not expect you to scout exclusively for the platform and are happy for you to maintain existing relationships.
Although we do all win if those investors are also encouraged to join the platform 😉
