Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Deal flow is key to a startup investor’s success.
Investors seeking startups to fund can follow these steps to attract deal flow:
Build a global network of venture partners, scouts, and micro funds. Showcase your network to the startup community to capture more startup interest.
Set up a series of meetings to attract startups seeking education, networking, and mentorship.
Provide content that helps startups.
Launch an accelerator program.
Provide programs for early-stage startups to organize their business.
Join pitch competitions as a judge or coach.
Provide a forum for startups to practice their pitch and gain experience answering questions.
Start a dinner series and invite promising startups to join for socializing and networking with investors.
A dinner meeting is a great way to foster the community and connect startups and investors.
Launch a newsletter with helpful information.
Set up a podcast and interview key people in the community.
Set up these programs to run continually throughout the year with an event happening every month.
It takes a year or two to generate awareness and another year to establish a brand.
Consistency is key, so set up a support team to help make it happen.
Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.
