Because that's where the money is.
San Francisco, California (PRWEB) June 30, 2015
Effectiveness issues aside, the major drawback to uploading a summary or pitch deck to a web site intended to connect start-ups with investors is that one is soon inundated with responses from brokers, service-providers, guru-wannabes and other time-wasters who have no money and no intention of investing in any project.
Even worse, many of these inquiries actually come from competitors.
CEO Capital Network solves this problem with an approach that is not only more secure but more effective as well.
Officially launching today, CEO Capital Network connects CEOs of start-ups seeking capital with managing general partners of venture capital funds… only.
CEO Capital Network focuses exclusively on managing general partners of venture capital funds for the same reason that Willie Sutton robbed banks: “Because that’s where the money is.”
According to the National Venture Capital Association, North American-based venture capital funds invested approximately $48.3 billion in start-up ventures in 2014 and followed that up with another $13.4 billion in the first quarter of 2015. This is the mother lode of start-up capital and the people calling the shots at these funds are the managing general partners.
Representing virtually every North American-based venture capital fund active in early-stage investments, there are currently over 1,213 managing general partners with credentials to access the CEO Capital Network. A complete list is provided at CEOCapNet.com.
"We really appreciate the response from the venture capital community which has been overwhelmingly positive from both CEOs and fund managers alike." Allene Lewis, CEO Capital Network
“CEO Capital Network is a game-changer for both CEOs and MGPs.” Bill McGraw, Wavefront
“A brilliantly simple concept, adeptly executed.” David Senerman, Grupo Arcano
“Got a call two days after posting my pre-launch listing.” Chris Moudy, Heavy Onion
CEO Capital Network is already adding managing general partners from venture capital funds in Europe, Israel, UAE, India, and Japan. Membership is open to CEOs of start-ups located anywhere in the world.
A 90-day CEO membership costs $100. There are no other fees or upgrades and no one - other than managing general partners of bona fide venture capital funds - has access to view the ideas, plans, concepts and other highly valuable information entrusted to CEO Capital Network.
