Where to find venture capitalists in order to convert them to customers

The idea that helps Venture Capitalists

Venture Capitalists want to discover and evaluate promising investment opportunities. However, they can't get it because they struggle to identify high-potential startups in a crowded market.

Therefore, they need to use your solution, e.g. VentureScout.

Startup Scouting Platform : VentureScout is a sophisticated software that uses data analytics, market trends, and machine learning to help venture capitalists identify and evaluate the most promising startup investments, providing valuable insights and recommendations. Of course it is much better than the stuff from Crunchbase, CB Insights, or PitchBook!

How to find Venture Capitalists

You can get insights about the pain points of venture capitalists if you listen to them carefully, either in person or online. Listening online is much easier because you need not ask them for a customer interview but you can observe them talking about their problems, out there in their natural habitat. They won’t even notice that you are there, watching and listening to them.

The process, step by step

One process that we can totally recommend is this:

  • Find out where venture capitalists hang out (Reddit, Mastodon, etc.)
  • Read what problems they talk about, and how urgent they are to them. (Did they try any solutions, yet? Did they spend money on anything, yet? Did they even cobble a homegrown solution together?)
  • Enter the conversation: Help them with tips, ask more about their situation and why they are in pain.
  • If you find recurring questions or pet peeves of venture capitalists, create some helpful content for them (e.g. a blog post, a podcast episode, or a video) and share it with them for free, in the same conversations. They will be delighted.
  • At the end of the blog post, invite them to use your solution: Startup Scouting Platform.

I described the process here in my blog post: Identify a hungry audience.

If you do this manually, it may take you hours each day. Automate it, with a little help from the AI in CustomerPing!
