How to find investor? Angel network or VC


Hi there,

I’m out of Kolhapur and I’m unaware of this. I’m in the middle of creating a start up of my own and I’m in need of funding. The start up is directed towards educational institutions. Where should I start to find funding for my start up. Which is most likely to be successful. Any ideas are appreciated.

Edusports ( which teaches sports at over 125 schools to over 40,000 students

ThinkLabs ( which teaches robotics at over 100 schools

2- kaizen is an education only fund

hi Akshay,

try to search for angel investors in your sector. try to find maximum number of competitors checkout how many of them have been funded and who has funded them. its easier to target angel investors. I f you find some angel investors in your area then contact them on facebook and linkedin.

be ready with a product prototype and and a 5minute speech about ur product. make sure u tell them what they want to know.

    Thanks for the reply. I’ll start looking for Angel Investors. As far as I know my product is unique and no other competitors for me. However this doesn’t mean that I’ll get the investors quickly. I just wanted to know if there are any Angel networks that I could go and demo my product to. If you know anything about it let me know.
