What is fual?

We’re more than just another communication tool. Welcome to your one-stop for fast, frequent, and informative updates.

By adding fual.io to your list of startup tools, you can bridge the gap between traditional monthly investor updates by allowing for improved communication with your investors.

Simple integration

We integrate directly through your company’s Slack channel making onboarding as easy as inputting a subscriber list.

Once your list is added, you and your team can start posting and engaging on the designated channel.

Actions

Chances are, your cap table can offer you goldmine intros, deal flow, increased social shares, and marketing opportunities.

Fual.io takes out the guessing of who can do what and having to individually reach out by allowing you to input one-tap actions for your investors directly onto the channel.

By putting #help you can prewrite emails for you investors who simply have to click on the request to be redirected to their own inbox.

A #share will enable your investors to tap on the media posted and share directly to their social channels.

With the removal of investors being able to post responses directly in the channel, you can feel good about your requests being a distribution of information instead of separate conversations.

Bring everyone along for the journey

Your investors are worth more than a monthly email, fual.io allows for your company to involve them with everything in between.

Show off your small gains, get your social shares up, improve your intros, and start ensuring that your investors are true advocates for your company.
