It is about who you know – and for how long Getting to meetings with potential customers or investors has a lot to do with who you know. Aftab Jamil explains how VC companies in and around Silicon Valley will look at around 100 companies before investing in one or two of them. “VCs are inundated with business plans and pitches from hopeful start-ups founders and CEOs of young companies. The most efficient way of getting their attention is often through personal recommendations from people in and around the Valley, whom the VCs know and trust. The same could be said to be true of establishing other business relationships,” he says. An important early step for any company looking at entering the US market or looking to for funding from VCs is networking early on, and as often as possible.
