Modules in Bigin's start-up fundraising template

Opportunities for precise deal tracking

First things first: This is the pipeline that shows you all your investors neatly organized by the stage they're at in your process. You'll be able to track and follow up on all your investors and immediately see how far along they are towards funding your business.

The more Investors, the merrier

Keep up with your ever-growing list of investors. In order to see your investors neatly arranged in stages on your pipeline, you need them all to be safely stored somewhere. The Investors module is where you'll find every investor you've pitched, negotiated, and signed—which eases out the process of fundraising.

Use Firms to keep track of group investors

Bigin gives you the flexibility to work with individual investors or an entire company, or a mix of both. This module lets you save all your potential and investor firms.

Track Products so you always know what you have to offer

Keep a list of all your products so you never have to scramble for details. Find another great product? Add it here, and you're good to go. Monitor all your products from start to finish.

Make calls and create tasks and events with Activities

Set up tasks and events, make calls to your investors, and host and schedule video calls and meetings—all within Bigin.

Crunch numbers with Dashboards

Stay on top of how many investors you've identified and how many you got on-board. Bigin features dashboards that accurately report your performance with customizable charts and tables.

A helpful pipeline to manage your investors

Bigin's pipeline has been a big hit in the small business world, so we decided to double down on our most important feature and provide a pipeline that covers all the key stages of fundraising.

Here are the stages of a typical investment deal in a pipeline:

As a very early stage start-up, we were looking for a CRM which is easy to set up and use, and which gives some flexibility of configuration while being cost-efficient. With Bigin by Zoho CRM, we were able to find the right balance.

For a solopreneur like me, Bigin was a dream come true! I have tried Pipedrive, Close, and other CRMs, but couldn’t justify the expense, and the free tiers of other products simply lacked the features that truly made them useful. But then along came Bigin—everything I need, and affordable. Thank you so much, Zoho, for making a product that helps solo operations and small businesses!

With the ability to customize the pipeline views, stages, module names, and fields, the moment one of our salespeople picks up the app, it just works and they love to use it. It requires virtually zero training. The team at Bigin just delivered a world-class tool.
