Happy Friday, everyone. Here’s a little bonus episode for this short week.
If you’re reaching out to a small fund, don’t email, every single person in the fund. And especially if you’re sending it from your thousand person mail merge list, which is a waste of time and money.
If you’re already in touch with one person at a fund, when you get connected to another person, bring everyone into the thread right away. By looping in separate connections from the same fund you show you’re on top of your investor pipeline, and you’re assuming they run a collaborative process.
I can’t say whether or not that applies for mega funds with dozens of investors on staff, but considering that most seed funds are small, connect the dots right away.
Otherwise, when we find out amongst each other that you’re running parallel conversations, it reflects poorly on you. And if you don’t know, just ask.
