A New Approach to Startup Fundraising
Most Founders Look for Investors Using 2 Methods
The Shotgun Approach
General networking and pitchfest competitions in the hopes of getting meetings or introductions to investors.
Basic Search for Investors by Industry
Basic internet/database searches to generate a long list of potential investors.
Using these approaches will lead to:
-Lots of wasted time
-Increased founder stress
-The endless chase for investors can
ultimately kill a startup
How do we know this?
Our team is made up entirely of individuals that have been both founders and investors in venture-backed companies ranging from pre-seed startups to publicly traded corporations.
How We Find SmartMoney Investors
We study exits in your industry and look at who funded them.
We look at actual deals done to gauge investor interest.
We look for the individual partner or angel who invested in the deal and gauge that individual's industry expertise.
We study the gorillas and flow of funds in your industry to better understand where the industry is headed.
Our Founder Explains the SmartMoney Approach
Your Startup Needs a Shortlist of SmartMoney Investors
A target list is key to getting warm introductions because it allows you to tap into the networks of your current advisors, investors and team.
Pitching SmartMoney investors will allow you to stop wasting time meeting with investors who don't really understand your business.
