Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Startup investing requires deal flow and the best deal flow comes from proprietary sources.
Here are some key points to set up your own process:
Contact your attorney and accountant as they are good sources of deal flow that aren’t known by everyone else.
Launch a content marketing program. Your own podcasts, blogs, and more, will build a pipeline of deals.
Organize your own pitch sessions separate from accelerators and incubators. Those groups run pitch sessions, but they are available to everyone so they provide little in the way of proprietary deal flow.
Create a community out of your network and invite them to send you deals.
Provide mentorship to each startup to make their time with you beneficial to those companies. Those startups will return the favor with their recommendations to other startups.
Start a dinner series and invite investors and startups to share a meal along with their experiences.
Create a brand that fosters community connectedness. The community will respond by sending you deals.
