  • Download the fual.io app on the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android)
  • Sign up using the email address that your start-ups use to communicate with you
  • Click the verification link in the email you receive after sign up
  • Log in on the fual.io app
  • You’re all set!
  • Once logged in, you’ll immediately see all the start-ups that have subscribed your email address to their update feed 
  • You'll know if one of the startups has posted a new update since you last checked, by the red dot on the start-up’s icon
  • To pause notifications from just one startup, you can tap ‘Mute’ in the top right of their update channel. 
  • If you’ve like to enable / disable notifications for all startups, tap the Settings cog in the top right of your home screen

First, you’ll need to check that push notification is enabled on the app. If this is enabled and you still aren’t receiving notifications, make sure that the channel you’re expecting these notifications from has not been put on mute.

To re-enable notifications, click on the settings icon located on the top right corner of the app and simply switch on notifications.

No. fual.io is designed for smart broadcasting and for investors to receive updates as a group. We don’t provide one-to-one response options.

If you don’t see a startup that you’re expecting to see, first make sure that the email used to sign up for fual.io is the same as the email that your startup has used to subscribe you to their updates. If that doesn’t work, drop us a line hello@fual.io

If you’re receiving too many notifications you have a couple of options. You can either mute individual companies or disable notifications for all updates.

  • Individual company: open the updates channel for this company, and tap ‘Mute’ in the top right.
  • All companies: from the home screen, tap the settings cog in the top right and then toggle notifications to the off position.

No. If an investor wishes to see company updates they will need to download the fual.io app.

Emails are great when you’ve got a distilled and structured set of updates to share with a defined group of stakeholders. Instead, fual.io is designed to help you engage a far wider audience - more frequently - and with greater ease. Instead of monthly emails to the select few, imagine how engaged your stakeholders could be with more frequent, intuitive updates that let them easily engage.

It’s really up to you. Think of fual.io as an extension of your founding team. If you’d likely mention something to one of them, whether its an exciting new deal you’ve closed, a new feature that’s just been shipped or a request for help when you don’t know where to look - that’s probably a good time to post an update to fual.io

While Slack is simple for most startups to understand - it can be fiddly for investors with multiple startups in their portfolio, meaning they might not get properly set up or quickly become disengaged as a result.

We understand privacy is important, so the only people who can see your updates will be the investors added to your subscription list, and any team members added to the Slack channel.
