Providing your company name & designation is a requirement for approving your investor/buyer profile on SMERGERS. When an introduction is made, the business needs to have an idea on who they’ll be discussing with and sharing their confidential business information. Kindly note your company name is not displayed publicly to everyone on the website, but is privately shown only to those business owners with whom you want to connect. If you still are unable to provide your company name due to employment commitments, then you may provide details of prior employment/business. In a nutshell, SMERGERS needs to associate you with a business, so the business owner knows more than just a name.
Your contact details and name are not publicly disclosed. It is only when you connect with a business that the business representative will be able to view your contact details.
All profiles on SMERGERS are displayed on a "no name" basis (except Institutional investors, Advisors and Franchises). Attachments on a business profile is visible to specific members only after the introduction is made. Businesses also have an option to not display their business name and contact number even after the introduction. In such cases the onus is on the business to reach out the investor after they receive an introduction. Further, post introduction, it is advisable to get an NDA signed before exchanging any sensitive information.
Kindly note that the final responsibility of conducting a thorough due diligence and sharing information lies with the users. If the user has a dispute with one or more other users, SMERGERS is not liable responsibile for any damages arising out of such disputes.
Under the buy side yearly plan we generally see that investors / advisors do not connect with more than 200 businesses. However, based on the feedback we collect from the business owners and legitimacy of connects made, we may provide additional credits to users who exhaust 200 credits.
Under the sell side professional plan we generally see that businesses do not send more than 400 proposals to prospective investors. However, based on the feedback we collect from investors and relevance of proposals sent, we may provide additional proposal credits to users who exhaust 400 credits.
Please note that post edit your profile will be on hold and will take up to 48 hrs for re-approval. Additionally, we may request you for supporting proofs for the edits made. Kindly edit your profile only when it is really required
