Dottedlink is an online platform created to assist entrepreneurs connect with and better understand investors and their investment requirements. It also serves as an e-commerce platform that provides entrepreneurs and investors with relevant products and services.
The site works by having investors answer a basic set of questions related to the companies they’ve invested in or are interested in investing in.
This allows entrepreneurs that are looking for an investment, have been rejected for an investment or entrepreneurs who would like to improve their businesses/business plans the opportunity to mull over an investors’ requirements and make improved adjustments to their businesses where necessary.
Doing so improves their businesses and increases their chances of obtaining funding should they require it.
The Dottedlink platform can be used through three ways:
- It can be used by investors to provide entrepreneurs with information through the “Investor survey page” accessed on the header of the website.
- It can be used by entrepreneurs to access the information provided by investors by purchasing our investor reports available on our store.
- It can be used by both entrepreneurs and investors to shop for specialized goods and services that meet their needs.
Investors can provide information to us through the “investor survey” page.
Providing information to the Dottedlink platform does not require investors to have registered accounts with us.
When investors click on the investor survey link, they will be re-directed to a page where they’ll be required to answer a few basic questions about their companies and the entrepreneurs they are looking to work with.
The survey itself won’t take longer than a few minutes to complete.

The information that’s submitted by our investors through the survey will be analysed and used by the Dottedlink team to compile an investor report.
The report can be used by our entrepreneurs to help familiarize themselves with a particular industry, an industry’s investors, what will be required from them to receive an investment as well as what will be needed from them to make their businesses a success.
