We’ve quietly made several updates to the Mergr platform so far in 2016 and one upgrade that active LinkedIn users may find useful, is the new Mergr LinkedIn plug-in.
The Mergr LinkedIn plug-in is listed on the team pages of every private equity and advisor profile and will pull the 1st and 2nd degree individuals you are connected with on LinkedIn.
To use, (1) simply log into your LinkedIn account within the same browser you are also using Mergr with, and (2), when visiting the team pages of either a PE firm or Advisor, select the LinkedIn widget button.
Here is an example of how the plug-in appears on the ‘Team’ page of PE firm Platinum Equity.
If there are shared connections, you’ll see the total displayed automatically.
To view individual connections, select the LinkedIn widget button and a window will appear showing each connection.
