How to Find Investors
If you’re raising money for a new startup or business venture you will need to understand how to find investors.
The best place to start, of course, is your own network. Build a spreadsheet of everyone who you think could be an investor or who could make an introduction to an investor and go from there. A quick piece of advice: start with at least 50 contacts.
Next, register for Raise, by Propel(x). We designed Raise with the expressed purpose of making fundraising easier, so that you can spend less time on pitching and more time on building.

Still managing your investor pipeline with a spreadsheet?
Spreadsheets are nice because they are free and and quick to use. But they also quickly become a mess of nested cells and color-coded confusion. When am I supposed to follow up with that investor? Check cell Q92. No thank you.
