“Goals provide the energy source that powers our lives. One of the best ways we can get the most from the energy we have is to focus it. That is what goals can do for us; concentrate our energy.”
~ Denis Waitley
Today I will tell you my last method for meeting venture capitalists (VCs).
It’s actually the one I use most, which is to meet them via email.
Many VCs still list their email addresses on their websites. If not, subscribe to a database that offers them, or simply call the VC firm and ask for the email address.
VCs get tons of emails, so just send them a “teaser” email with no attachments. A “teaser” email is an email that “teases” the investor by giving them a bite-sized amount of compelling information about your company.
The goal of the email is to see if they are interested. If they are, you will follow up with more information (maybe your Executive Summary and/or full business plan) with the goal of getting a face-to-face meeting with the investor.
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.
