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.

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.

- 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.
