Perceiving Success through Challenges
Originally, CapLinked was set up to improve the process of raising money for startups. In 2012, the firm decided to enter the virtual data room industry to empower businesses to retain control of their assets. CapLinked has also been featured in one of the journals as ‘The 10 Best Collaboration Technology Solution Providers’ category and named as “the go-to place for setting up and closing deals” by the Wall Street Journal.
Christopher states that, “Our biggest challenge was finding the right people for the team. Everything starts with that. If you have the right people, good things can happen. If you don’t, it’s not likely. Today we are fortunate to have a very strong team.”
He has also mentioned another biggest challenge as, “Focusing on basic needs of what particular investors, customers, or founders wanted to do. We wasted a lot of time and resources on ideas that would not have been supported by a data-driven approach.” says Christopher.
Emerging New Technologies
CapLinked is working towards the emergence of new technology and trends. This new emerging technology enhances the company’s technological platform and reliability. Christopher put his views as, “If you can’t find a clear advantage in what you are doing now, you should try doing something else until you find it. Once you find it, push that advantage as hard as you can until it stops working. Then begin at step one again and find a new advantage.”
Foreseeing a Successful Tomorrow
At present, the technology is deeply embedded in almost every aspect of life. Many people spend more time interacting with technology than they do with people. So today the technologist must be substantially more concerned with the psychological and social impact of technology on humans and their lives. Understanding this progression, CapLinked has also evolved its technology which impacts people and making them more interactive with the technology. The company is ultimately using this method, as the key to success for themselves more than the technology itself.
For future endeavors, CapLinked aims to continue to be a leader in the collaboration technology market and expanding its virtual data rooms and secure document sharing solutions across the globe. The company has also launched TransitNet, a product for recording chain of title ownership and audit trail of crypto assets, that will be accessible via CapLinked’s API and will be the first in the industry.
