- The first option is to approach venture capitalists yourself. This is a very time consuming process and you risk taking your mind and attention away from your business.
- The best way to find a venture capitalist is through an intermediary. They know the important players on the street and what they are looking for and investing in. The venture capitalist relies on recommendations of the people they trust. If the intermediary has established friendly relationships with them, it will boost your chances of getting in.
- Going after a venture capitalist without an intermediary is like going to court and trying to represent yourself instead of having a lawyer.
