Many entrepreneurs, both new and seasoned, don’t want to admit that it’s a full-time job to raise money. And investors have just as hard of a time finding the best deals before committing to invest. Venture Connects exists to connect the best startups, investors and corporate partners to potentially help each party grow.
We work with the best companies and have only accepted 53 companies (12%) of applicants to date. It’s rewarding to know that each company accepted into VCVetted is still in business or has been acquired.
What differentiates us from the pack? We actively work with our VCVetted companies to help prepare them prior to seeking funding. This allows them to put their best foot forward when speaking with investors. Additionally, instead of being another angel group, we invite all accredited investors to join our network at no charge. This gives the startups in our network a chance to get in front of a variety of investors at one time.
Simply put: when opportunities, preparedness and connectivity come together, your chances of success greatly increase.
Venture Connects is a privately-held company based in Chicago, Illinois, and works with startups, angel & institutional investors, family offices and venture capital firms across the United States.
