VC / Startup Matchmakers?

Published: 5/28/2008 1:16:52 PM, comments: 0

We recently surveyed our subscribers and among the many suggestions and feedback comments received, we learned that a number of our users would like to have what I referred to as a VC/startup “matchmaker” service that helps startups who are seeking funding find the right VCs to pitch their opportunity to.

While we are very interested in providing relevant services to our visitors and users, there are a number of possible ways to provide this kind of service and we would like to know the type of demand for it.

For those startup entrepreneurs who are seeking funding, please visit our Contact page and send us an e-mail letting us know if this is a type of service that you would be interested in and if you would like us to contact you for more information.

Working With Angel Investors

Todd Vernon, CEO of Lijit, has an informative piece on dealing with angel investors.

He focuses on the typical motivations that different angels have toward investing in startups, as well as the ramifications for each investor sub-type.

The post also provides a few tips about financing, but is more heavily focused on the individual dynamics of different types of angel investors.

VentureDeal has also published an Angel Financing Guide.  Our take was more on what entrepreneurs can expect from the process of approaching an angel group and demystifying the process of seeking funding.
