The article outlines three separate ways that you can gain venture capital for a seed stage start-up. Finding a listing of investors is the first way (and the author states that this can be quite a difficult but necessary task) – and an interactive map of Spain (broken into venture capital and private equity entities) is shown. Focusing on investors that are near to your company – or to the region where you’re going to develop your business is the second way. The third way focuses on making sure that your opportunity for your investors matches up with their respective strategies for investing.
- Sometimes it is difficult to find an accurate and complete list of all the venture capital and private equity entities available to you.
- Among professional investors, their investments follow a strategy. Any opportunities that fall outside that strategy will probably be declined.
- In the study we explained that investors don’t usually invest in startups that are far from the city where they live. They want to have their invested companies on “their radars.”
“Therefore, focus your efforts on the investors that are near to your company or to the region where you develop your business.”
