Dear Farillio member,
On 17th December 2020, you asked our brilliant expert Vivi Friedgut on the Go Far Fast Show:
“How do you find a good investor?”
And Vivi said:
Be mighty always, Farillio
“I think that the only comparison to finding an investor is dating. Great investors may be terrible investors for you. The question is, what is it that you need? What is it that you're looking for? What is it that they're looking for? Then it's trying to match it up and that's part of the reason it's so difficult. There are a million forums, there are a zillion people, and there's LinkedIn, in terms of finding people. With events, with connections and with social media – finding investors is not the hard bit. Connecting with them can be tricky. Speak to other founders, get their guidance, get their advice, get their referrals. As much as you can go in cold, warm is better. So really tap your networks and get your networks to tap their networks. The only thing you can do is keep slogging at it. There is no magic bullet.”
