Increase your investment sales team's efficiency

Strengthen your outreach

Set more meetings

Is your investment sales team meeting its goals?

  • Do you spend more time researching who to call on than you spend in meetings?
  • Are you constantly being promised clean and accurate data that never materializes?
  • Are you relying on someone who isn’t from the fundraising world to provide your team with accounts and contacts?
  • Are you tired of counting on your sales team alone to update your Salesforce data?

At Dakota, we provide the resources and institutional investor lists you need to connect with more allocators and set more meetings.

What is Dakota Live?

Register for a Dakota Live! Call to see exactly how we create content on allocators, and ensure you always know who to call.

The Dakota Live! Call is a live event connecting investment salespeople with leading allocators.

Each call provides insight into institutional investment allocators — who they are, what they think, what they’re investing in, and details about their investment platform. The call covers everything you need to know about an allocator before meeting with them. 


What our clients are saying:

"Marketplace provides the most actionable data I have ever encountered in my 30+ years in the business. It is abundantly clear that Marketplace is built by salespeople for salespeople. I am continuously amazed at its rapid prospect expansion and its real-time updates on the appropriate decision makers. It is an incredible time-saver that lets you concentrate on selling, not researching prospects."

Tod Perry
Managing Director, Business Development, Algorithmic Investment Models


What our clients are saying:

"I will now, tomorrow, and forever, be a brand testimonial for you and the platform. If I am not with this firm at any point, it will be a requirement for any new employer prior to hiring that they invest in the platform. Honest assessment. Please ask me as many times as you need. If they ever want someone on the call to clearly articulate why this changed my sixteen-year career, I am your guy."
