Making Connections

Fern Mandelbaum, Monitor Venture Partners

Mandelbaum recommends trying to meet someone that has connections in the venture capital community. It is very difficult to approach a venture firm unsolicited, but much easier with the introduction of an influential person in the community. Take advantage of opportunities to get in touch with venture capitalists, she suggests.
