I recently opened a startup and I am preparing a well-crafted presentation of my idea for potential investors.
I have to admit that I really don't know how to contact them. Finding them is difficult and even when identified, I don't know how to reach them. I feel like an investor is a one shot opportunity in that if I send them an email and they don't reply, the opportunity is gone.
What is the best approach to contact an investor? Is it just sending an email with a few words? An email with an attached abstract? And what if that investor is a foundation?
I sent an email to a foundation but I never got a reply. Perhaps they didn't read the email or perhaps they read it but didn't review the attached abstract. Is there anyone who would like to share useful strategies/methods for contacting an investor as well as the best way to frame the discourse?
