Untapped Capital VC firm keeps its LPs informed with investor portal built with Softr

"I tried other tools, like Webflow and Stacker, but they were either too flexible or not flexible enough. When I used Softr, it was clear immediately that the capabilities went beyond what I found elsewhere. Technology is core to our fund, and Softr is key to differentiating ourselves with a custom client portal that allows us to operate efficiently." 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
