BlackCamp – Private Investment Management

BlackCamp takes private investment seriously. The web-application helps users organize and optimize their private investments with task lists, record keeping features, and document sharing tools. BlackCamp users can review what’s going on in their portfolios by logging in and viewing their online dashboards from a desktop or mobile phone at any time.

BlackCamp was not built for passive investors. The web-application was developed for investors to enjoy taking active roles in the companies they work with. If this description meshes well with your own style of investing, then sign up for an account and choose a pricing plan based on the number of companies in your portfolio. Enter the appropriate data about all your current investments, and then set your own metrics, performance indicators, goals, and objectives for each company in your portfolio. Each month, BlackCamp will send you an overview that compares the status of your investments to the objectives or goals you previously set out. The application also offers a number of tools that you can use when providing guidance and management to smaller companies, such as task lists, record keeping, and document sharing.

Privacy is always a concern for people managing their investments and financials online. BlackCamp has addressed this issue by providing bank-level security and multi-platform functionality. The application also offers a useful Pitch tool, which investors can use to ask entrepreneurs specific questions about their businesses before deciding whether or not to invest their funds.
