All over the internet, the consensus seems to be that when you are looking for funding it is important to approach angels or VCs through an introduction from someone they know, rather than cold.
I'm looking for funding for a technology company (a bit over $1 mil) and am based in Australia. Although I am quite willing to be funded by investors from the US, Europe or Asia, I can't go and hang out in a cafe in Silicon Valley.
I'm sure there are people on the forum who have done this successfully. How did you go about the funding process and get those introductions?
Just to clarify: the other founders are in the US and Finland - so we are truly a global business!
