Raising capital for a business is hard. On top of building a fundable business, you need to find the right investors for your business. One of the aspects founders will look to first in an investor is their location.
Some investors (VCs and angel investors) will invest based on a company’s location. Finding a list of investors in your area can be a great way to start building a fundraising list (of course you’ll want to make sure the investor fits your other criteria too).
