    Venture Capital
    Does anyone here have experience with good VCs? We are looking to take our physical business to the next level and could use an influx of capital to continue our expansion.
    Respectfully,

    John

    I live in MA and one of my freinds recently go VC first stage funding for his company, but they only deal with local companies.

    Do you have a formal proposal for the VC's? if so you could easily approach them online and see if they know anyone interested.

    What sector is your company in? Word is alot of VC's are reluctant to fund certain sectors like tech right now, my freind had to wait 1 year to get funding,he originally wanted 500k and had to go al the way down to 115k

    my impression is that venture capital is just for the bigwig companies. normal joes like us wouldn't even get a call back.

    am i wrong?

    yes. My freind wasn't a bigwig company. And remember even the mighty google started out from an idea and 100k in startup capital.
