Relationship Science Shows You How to Access the People and Organizations Most Critical to Your Success
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Science (RelSci) launches today as the ultimate business development
tool that maps your existing relationships to more than two million
influential decision-makers in the business, finance, and nonprofit
sectors. RelSci helps business and nonprofit organizations of all sizes
make deals, sell services and products, and raise money.
RelSci features research-driven profiles - not user-generated - of
influential decision makers and their organizations. RelSci puts
essential knowledge about your relationships at your fingertips: who
they are and who they know, what you have in common with them, and how
you can access them and their organizations.
RelSci was created because existing online resources fall short in
providing fast, actionable, and relevant relationship knowledge. Social
networks only get you part of the way when accessing the right person
really matters. Traditional CRM systems serve up limited intelligence.
Online search cannot tie data together to create real insight.
RelSci was founded by Neal Goldman, the founder of Capital IQ, and is
funded with approximately $60 million from prominent individuals and
institutions, including Ken Langone, Hery Kravis, CV Starr, Hearst
Corporation, MacAndrews & Forbes, RIT Capital, Stanley Druckenmiller,
Barry Sternlicht, Andrew Tisch, Harvey Golub, and Joe Perella. RelSci's
team of more than 500 professionals - including 125 employed at the
company's headquarters in New York City - keep RelSci's content current,
develop the system's sophisticated tools, and service clients.
"As someone who has raised capital, extensively engaged in direct
selling and built mutually productive partnerships throughout my career,
I continuously grasped for ways to better leverage information and my
relationships," Goldman said. "I always thought there had to be an
easier way to identify and connect with the people and organizations I
needed to reach to achieve my goals. So I decided to create RelSci to
fill that need."
RelSci provides profiles on over two million professionals (and their
organizations) who are "in-the-mix" and responsible for driving their
businesses, investments, and causes forward. Key features include:
Extensive data on work history, board connections, deal history,
education, nonprofit donations and affiliations, investment holdings,
personal interests, creative works, awards, business relationships,
and relevant personal and family connections
Robust relationship mapping functionality that enables discovery of
unique access points to these people and their organizations
Insightful views of who and what you have in common with potential
Web and mobile applications
RelSci solves key business challenges including:
Who are the right people and the right organizations to approach
How can you unlock the knowledge, influence, and opportunities that
exist within your existing relationships
How do you get smarter about the relationships and interests you have
in common with people you meet or do business with everyday
RelSci is currently offering in-person and virtual demonstrations to
interested individuals and organizations. RelSci clients are
accomplished professionals working in the following sectors: Investment
Banking, Wealth Management, Private Equity, Corporate, Technology, Hedge
