DealRockit was designed with five important segments of the small business ecosystem in mind:
All paid membership plans are designed to be powerful growth engines that pull others with it. Each paid membership type was based on unique needs. Individuals, Power Player firms and Platform enterprises face different demands, constituents, and objectives, which we have addressed. Individual subscribers receive full DealRockit marketplace benefits plus complete access, including 1 Investor & 1 Capital Seeker seller listing BONUS, on our exclusive Private Deal Exchange. Power Player and Platform member firms enjoy full DealRockit marketplace privileges and many unique privileges of their own. Each, for example, can invite Sponsored Members and Employee Members to join DealRockit at no charge. Platform members have the additional benefit of inviting Power Player Members at no charge. Sponsored Members include clients; investors; prospects; and business owners, buyers, and sellers. Employee Members include employees of Platform and Power Player Member Firms.
As an Individual subscriber you will receive the full benefits of the DealRockit platform + complete access including 1 investor/buyer & 1 capital seeker/seller listing BONUS on our exclusive Private Deal Exchange. We listened and customized a membership just for you.
The DealRockit Individual Membership was added after listening to the comments and feedback from our testers and beta members. All are very successful, highly talented professionals, recent retirees, executives, and entrepreneurs, each looking for their next act, growth capital, or opportunity inside/outside their business or practice. Each wanted full access to this space. Some, were dissatisfied with the status quo, itching to get back in the game, or seeking a better way to interact and transact.
Much like the minivan and iPod, they did not go to bed at night thinking I wish I had a minivan or iPod, but rather, when they saw DealRockit, they recognized the need and wanted in immediately. Hence, the Individual Membership was born - providing maximum flexibility, time savings, and the ability to connect, collaborate, and close in unprecedented ways. If you are an experienced/independent person, entrepreneur, investor/capital seeker, executive or professional who prefers not to be tied to a sponsor or firm, then an Individual membership is right for you.
Stay tuned because they then asked, can I upgrade later to a Power Player membership and bring in my dealmates (cost sharing) or my team from work, should I so choose. We love suggestions and feedback, it makes the DEALROCKiT platform that much better.
DealRockit Platform and Power Player memberships are right for those organizations seeking to ROCKiT growth and better align with employees, clients, and business partners. Both the Platform and Power Player memberships were specifically designed to help firms rapidly move up the value chain by offering ready-made solutions that better serve and positively impact their ecosystem. Our proprietary marketplaces, matching, and membership features create demand and exceptional value, making these organizations and the businesses/clients they invite more transactional and engaged.
Here's how the managing partner of a top 200 CPA firm describes the clear benefits of a paid DealRockit membership.

DealRockit also offers customized membership solutions that check all the right boxes, helping financial services companies and insurance carriers solve competitive challenges through ecosystem investing:
DealRockit membership is by paid subscription or invitation only. Individual and Power Player members subscribe and pay for their subscriptions on the Register page. Platform members subscribe and pay for their subscriptions via the Admin portal. Using the Membership Invite feature on their User Dashboard, Platform and Power Player members can invite firm employees and clients to join DealRockit as Employee and Sponsored members at no charge. Platform members may also invite Power Player Members at no charge. Accepting membership can only be done through an invitation from a Platform or Power Player Member. Each invitation contains a unique code or password that the invitee must use to get started. After accepting their invitation, members receive an e-mail containing next steps and easy "how to" instructions.
Prospective Members, not yet sponsored, may seek out membership invitations from existing Power Player Member Firms or by simply selecting Need A Sponsor in Step 1 on the Register page.

This virtual marketplace platform is based on a series of fluid relationships, matches, and intuitive features which, in the end, combine to create exceptional user outcomes and experiences.

Trust and verification are extremely important at DealRockit:
Contact between users first happens through the Connect/Join button features followed by a confirming e-mail to ensure full privacy, security, and non-intrusiveness. The names and contact information pertaining to sellers and capital seekers may be kept confidential and restricted until the user approves otherwise. In fact, sellers and capital seekers listing on Private Deal Exchange and Funder Direct marketplaces have hide button features available to them for privacy and anonymity.
The easy listing process ensures platform speed, confidentiality and mutual trust. After registering, each member will be directed to their User Dashboard. All members have listing/participation privileges on the following marketplaces:
Only Platform and Power Player members have listing privileges on Business Services.
Before listing, users are required to answer a series of brief survey questions that determine preference criteria, matching possibilities (buyer-seller, etc.) and data for analytics. All users then certify, via checkbox, that they have met all compliance and accuracy requirements before being permitted to list.
After registering, a user is immediately eligible to list on any of the marketplace platforms and take full advantage of the unique My Matches and Advanced Match features DealRockit has to offer. Upon listing, a scorecard is immediately generated that allows each user to quickly compete, connect, and match. Access to robust match, data analytics, dashboards, and feedback tools allows each user to test scenarios, examine how they measure up and, of course, to find future buyers, sellers, investors, capital seekers and partners.
DealRockit is unique in that it is a true marketplace platform that brings five or more sides together - buyer, seller, investor, capital seeker, and service provider - efficiently and in multiple ways and scenarios. Here are some other ways we stand out from the crowd:

It is important for all participants, but particularly for both buyers/sellers and investors/capital seekers, to think ahead about what each would want to know if they were in the other's shoes.
To that end, please keep in mind the following:
Keep in mind there are very few serial buyers/investors or sellers/capital seekers; for most, it's their "first rodeo." At this critical juncture, most users do not know where and how to begin when comes to buying, selling, and investing in businesses. Herein lies the "gap trap," which is precisely why we built this self-driving, start right platform - to anticipate and proactively solve the key issues that previously caused principals to not participate and connect or deals to fail. The lack of access, good options, and quality matching and sequencing capabilities clearly limited past participation and success.
Our proprietary process and algorithms address these key issues up front. This makes it easier for the "checked out" and ignored to get into the game and for those in the game to better position themselves for success. Our online user interface is intuitive, easy to use, and extremely reliable. By operating at the intersection of technology and human intervention, we offer a better process and platform on ramp that:
