BlackCamp to revolutionize how actively participating company investors track, manage, and control their various company portfolios.
Zug, January 03, 2012: BlackLex AG announced today the launch of its new investment portfolio tracking and reporting application, BlackCamp. It is the world’s first web-based investment portfolio application specifically built for actively participating company investors. BlackLex expects heavy sales of BlackCamp in the first quarter which will likely exceed 2,500 customers by year end 2012.
BlackLex CEO, David Dostal, said of the new platform, “We’re truly excited about making BlackCamp available to the investing public. Many investors take a hands-on approach to the small companies they invest with and BlackCamp will revolutionizes the way they interact with those investments.”
BlackCamp is especially vital to the angel investor. These investors are high net-worth individuals who bring both capital and hands on management in exchange for an equity share of startup businesses. In fact, it is estimated that angel investors invested $26 billion in 2007 alone in the United States. These hands on investors are in desperate need of a product such as BlackCamp.
While there are countless tools available on the market to track simple investments, none of them address the concerns of the actively participating company investor. Attempting to use a spreadsheet or complex database to track and control an investment in a company is a laborious process. BlackCamp makes the process easy and intuitive.
BlackCamp will allow companies to report progress directly to their investors. Investors will then be able to read the reporting through a graphical analysis of both projected and actual results. BlackCamp allows for a flexible reporting process so that businesses in any sector may be mapped with minimal effort.
Dostal explained that, “Phone, email, and spreadsheets simply cannot provide the in-depth reporting and goal-setting that BlackCamp will allow.” He went on to say that, “If you need a close investment tracking solution to help control your investment, this is the answer for you.”
The new platform has a wide array of features available for its users. Included with BlackCamp are goal setting/monitoring functions, task tracking and management, file/document cloud-uploading capabilities, and the recording of calls and meetings. In addition, the application allows for multiple company tracking from the BlackCamp hub.
BlackCamp is designed to run on all devices, including standard laptops and desktops, tablets, and smartphones. The graphical interface appears the same on each device- type. Since the application is web-based, there is nothing to install and nothing to update.
Dostal ensured customers that BlackCamp is completely secure. He said, “The security of our users’ data is the most important factor I can think of at BlackLex. BlackCamp has a 256-bit SSL bank-level security encryption that integrates with McAfee Secure.”
Investors that take an active role in their various company investments are encouraged to visit BlackCamp’s website, www.BlackCamp.co. Potential users of the application are invited to a free, 14-day trial with no credit card required. There are three different packages that an investor may sign-up for, each package allowing for a different number of portfolio companies to be tracked.

It is an investor that takes an active role in the companies that it invests in.
