Pro-tips:

  1. This list is to be used as a reference, not a call sheet.
  2. Do not cold e-mail VC’s as it is a waste of time.
  3. If you are raising a seed round do not try and raise a round from a VC that only does A rounds
  4. Find an intro to the VC through your network, other entrepreneurs are a great start but sales people that work in the space are more valuable.

Recruiting for your startup? Run an accelerator, incubator, or launchpad?
