3i launches technology extranet

The extranet, InsideEdge, will give 3i businesses access to a global network of expertise and support.

The site gives entreprenuers the chance to communicate with experts, discuss key issues or concerns and receive advice from external advisors.

It will also provide links to international newspapers, a schedule of key technology events and on-line databases.

Richard Summers, director of continental Europe and technology at 3i says InsideEdge is the first known VC site of its kind.

“InsideEdge is a significant development for 3i and reinforces our position as a leading investor in technology businesses, that adds value to the companies in which it invests.”
