General

 

At Irbis Ventures, we are committed to build a world class, collaborative platform driven by a global community of investors, startups and advisors. We designed and built the “Irbis Oasis” web-platform (the “Platform”) for you. The Platform is simply a set of digital tools built for you to discover, connect and collaborate with like-minded tech enthusiasts, investors and advisors.

 

Building connections (in both online and offline world) in a startup world naturally requires people to share their personal information with another. In this regard, the Platform may collect and use your personal information to help you in building those connections.
