1) How to research potential Investor ?
2) What questions to get an answer on in the research? What to look for?
3) Is there sites that list pre-researched info that is needed?
4) Also, I read on a VC's website "Think why your business should appeal to us, given our track record of investments and the public comments we've made"- why is it my job to waste hours or days looking for this if they didn't even tried to put it on their website in a concise way. Should I just ask them : "Are you interested in ABC that does XYZ?" and they can read it for 15 seconds and say Yes or No ? Am I really wasting that much of their time vs they are wasting too much of my and every other entrepreneurs time?
EDIT: No, I am not implying that Investors should be spamed not respecting their investment criteria. I am simply making mental evaluation of time productively used vs wasted. Kind of playing "bitching" about it. Obviously tone of my original post performance didn't translated.
I want to innovate and find better solution for something that takes a lot of time like researching Investors. I don't want to waste my time doing SAME exact research that 100,000 people already did and 99,999 wasted their time doing and could have just read the concise results of previous research.
I want to put more of my time toward building product and getting customers, not researching Investors from scratch. So maybe there are places that allow Investors and Entrepreneurs to come together and save each side time. Where I can type my industry or type of product and get a list of investors interested in that and/or put a profile and indicate an industry and type of product and where investors can search?
So far I found:
Are there others?
