Founder Toolkit 🧰 - Investor Databases
22 Investor Databases ~400k+ Investors (Updated August 17)
As a Founder and investor I’m consistently trying to find ways to give back to a community which has been very generous to me. Part of that is creating a more open, democratised and transparent ecosystem for startup funding. I wrote a tweet yesterday collating databases and networks of startup investors. It was more popular than I expected, generating at the time of writing close to half a million impressions. Thank you to everyone who shared it.
I had dozens of DMs and comments from other Founders and Angels sharing additional resources, so here’s my expanded post with the full list. Thank you to all that contributed!
If you find it useful, I’d appreciate you subscribing to this blog, and I’ll share more good stuff with you in the future.
