Over the years, we’ve spent a lot (A LOT) of time looking for angel investors and venture capital firms to grow our different businesses. One thing that never changes, whether you are an early stage startup looking for pre-seed or seed funding, a scale up in the middle of a series A/B round or even a consultant looking for VC partners is...
... you will need some kind of a VC list or a database to get started!
And a database doesn’t just mean a list of websites. You will need more than that. You will need to know who the people are in each organisation, what their linkedin’s are and their twitters accounts. And you also need to get to know these individuals before you start engaging.
Now, this kind of database literally takes weeks to build. So, we decided to build it for you:
You will receive a list of UK based venture capital firms. Each with a selection of quality and verified fields that will help you start engaging.
Discover a few stories of how the Startupmag venture capital database worked for them
I basically saved at least 4 weeks of research. It’s as simple as that.
All other lists simply show a top 10 of VCs that everybody ends up contacting. I was really surprised with the number of players in London.
I downloaded the spreadsheet, connected to everybody on linkedin and got my first meeting within 24 hours. What else can I say?
I didn’t have any contacts or anybody to make intros. So I put this database into my CRM and I was off. And it worked great.
Obviously, your project needs to have legs, but most of these investors are actually just happy to help and at least point you in the right direction.
I paid, received the spreadsheet by email and started sending my deck within a few minutes.
As soon as we receive your payment, you will access your very own dashboard with a direct link to download your database.
The database is stored in a simple spreadsheet that you can access through Google Drive, Microsoft Excel or Open Office. The format is perfect for easy read, analysing and compatible with any CRM.
We do not provide direct email addresses to all partners. We cannot guarantee that all venture funds have a company linkedin or twitter account. But if they do, you will have it.
Unfortunately the nature of the product doesn’t allow for refunds. If you have the data, well... you have the data. We suggest that you consult the sample above before proceeding with the purchase. It’s a great representation of the rest of the database.
Please don't hesitate to contact us here. We'll do everything we can to help.
Venture capital is money invested by venture capital “firms” into fast growing companies. These firms or funds are also called venture capitalists.
We have put quotes around the word ‘firms” as recently the line between angel investors and venture capital is blurred. Below is a brief description of each venture capital category.
A venture capital firm groups together the investment of several investors into a fund. Each investor then becomes a limited partner. Investors can be individuals, businesses and corporations but also other funds.
Most venture capital funds have a lifetime of 5-10 years. That is the time that is allotted to invest all the capital and return profits to the investors.
One single venture capital firm can raise several funds in different sectors, time horizons and deal sizes.
CVC (corporate venture capital) are funds set up by large organisations such as Google Ventures or Salesforce ventures. This category is growing fast as tech businesses are gaining resources and progressively becoming the largest businesses in the world.
Family offices are privately held companies that manage the investments of a wealthy family. Traditionally risk averse and closely linked to private equity, these entities have been joining forces with aggressive venture capital firms to invest in fast growing tech companies.
Large angel investors can have their own researchers and admin staff. The structure will be run like a family office but with the targeting and aggressiveness of an early stage venture capital fund.
Some angel investors get together in business angel syndicates. Here, the syndicate will generally see more deals than an individual angel and the angel can decide whether or not they would like to invest.
Accelerators and incubators are generally backed by large corporate organisations that are trying to dip their toe into innovation by helping young businesses grow within their framework. They will invest in startups with funds but also mentorship and partnerships.
Unfortunately, the idea that seed VC money is destined for businesses at the very early “seed” stage of growth is ...
I’ve even had first hand experience with quite a famous pre-seed VC. They were claiming all over Linkedin that pitch decks were a ...
