LaunchVic has subscribed to an online marketplace, Proven. Used by leading VC firms in Silicon Valley, including Sequoia, NEA, Sierra Ventures and many others to help startups in their portfolio reduce the costs of doing business; Victorian startups now have access to do the same in three easy steps.

What is Proven?

Proven is a platform where Victorian startups can access exclusive deals and discounts from leading vendors to help run their business. Startups can search for various vendors based on their needs and filter their search by price, experience and clients they provide for.

Proven has also made the RFP process easy for startups. The vendor will receive a message from a startup looking for a price for services, and both can connect via the app.  Not only is this a fair and transparent way to choose the right vendor, but it will also cut time spent sifting through unsolicited messages from other vendors trying to sell their services.

Using Proven, you will have peace of mind that vendors have up to date certification and licensing.  Proven reminds vendors to upload new licensing to ensure they are compliant.
