So you’re working on your startup and want to connect with investors to take your dream to the next level.
Short of sending out emails to random firms and attending networking events there is really no epicenter for Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors to connect with startups who need funding until now.
VCNetwork.co is a comprehensive database of independent venture capitalists who are seeking viable startups to fund.
The network is a joint venture between two women in tech Jenny Q. Ta, CEO and founder of Sqeeqee.com, the World's first Social Networthing® platform, and Shinta “Bubu” Dhanuwardoyo founder and CEO of Bubu.co
“The old-fashioned way of funding only those startups that are owned by individuals within the VC(venture capitalist)’s own circle is a model that’s outdated (and) hindering innovation lead by true leadership in our industry,” Ta said in a telephone interview with SashaTalksTech.com
The database, which is growing daily, includes more than 400 VC's and Angel Investors who signed up within a week of the launch.
Here's how VCNework.co works:
Entrepreneurs create an online profile and submit a business plan which should include information about the team and how much funding they're seeking.
The startup will receive a notification that their profile and business plan was shared with that particular VC and will have access to their website for further information.
An added perk for start-ups, your first submission is free!
It'll cost you $99 for each additional submission.
