“Failure is not about insecurity. It’s about lack of execution.”
~ Jeffrey Gitomer
As you know, this week I’ve been telling you about ways to meet venture capitalists (VCs).
Today’s method is to meet them at events.
- Meet them at Industry Events
All industries have events. And at these events venture capitalists who are interested in funding companies in that sector will come.
For example, a few years ago I attended the AdTech conference in NYC to learn about the newest online advertising technologies. One of the speakers at the event was Tim Chang, the Managing Director of Mayfield Fund. In addition to Tim, lots of other venture capitalists were there.
- Meet them at Local Events
Every major city has local technology and other events that attract venture capitalists.
One of the best ways to find out about these events is at http://www.meetup.com/.
I just searched on “venture capital” and found tons of events that VCs will be at.
Forget Old School!
The “old-school” way of raising venture capital is DEAD!
And that’s why I created this page for you… to show you how to do it right.
There’s a common mistake almost every entrepreneur makes… and if you approach venture capitalists like most entrepreneurs, you’ll NEVER get funded.
