“Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.”
~ Jim Rohn
This week I’ve been telling you about ways to meet venture capitalists (VCs).
Another proven way to accomplish this is to meet them on social media.
- Meet Them on Twitter
Many VCs are active on Twitter. So find them on Twitter and then follow them. See what they’re posting about and use that to start a dialogue with them (via direct messaging, replying to a tweet, etc.).
- Meet Them on LinkedIn
LinkedIn makes it very easy to find and get connected with VCs. As you grow your LinkedIn network, you’ll gain more and more connections to VCs.
Once the targeted VC is in your network, send them a LinkedIn message.
