22 Investor Databases to help you raise your next round
If you're building a business that's targeting Regional/EIS VC at seed, you're looking at a minimum of 20 investors that will need to be in your pipeline. If you're building a power venture opportunity, it will be more like 100. There simply aren't enough funds or investors in Scotland to make that number viable, and the risk appetite and term-landscape isn't a fit for everyone. You can't afford not to be looking beyond Scotland for every aspect of your business, including funding.
So we decided to kickstart a resource library by collating 22 different lists of investors based around different sectors, types, and stages.
It's specifically not focused on Scotland-based investors, because if you want to build at scale, you shouldn't be building a Scottish company. You're building a company.
This comes following a few requests from different communities in the ecosystem to start collating resources and make them available to browse. We'd like to add to this resource library with templates, deck examples, reading lists, professional service recommendations, etc. If you have an idea or want to contribute to the resource library, please get in touch.
You can find it here. You'll have to be signed in - let us know if you have any issues accessing.
