From the Publisher

Designed to help entrepreneurs, business owners and others determine if they are candidates for professional venture capital and, if so, which venture companies to approach. This definitive resource for planning an organized, targeted search for capital includes over 600 of the nation's most active venture capital firms. Each company is discussed in terms of location, phone numbers, types and sizes of investments, geographic preference and more.

From the Back Cover

In a rapidly changing world, new opportunities abound. But it takes more than just a good idea and entrepreneurial talent to exploit those opportunities. Among other things, it takes money--usually more money than an entrepreneur can raise from family, friends, banks, and other traditional sources. But where do you find the kind of investors who can make the difference between just starting a business and creating a thriving enterprise, between holding your own and capturing significant market share, and even between growing rich and going broke? The Directory of Venture Capital!

Whether you're involved in computer technology, telecommunications, entertainment, advanced materials, biotechnology, financial services, retail, wholesale, distribution, or service--if dramatic growth and substantial profits are possible, the Directory of Venture Capital can connect you with the investors that can help make it happen.

Up-to-date, detailed, and complete, the Directory of Venture Capital is an essential resource for planning an intelligent, targeted search for capital. The synthesis of extensive research on the nation's venture capital firms and Small Business Investment Corporations, this book includes over 600 of the most active players, along with valuable information such as: Main office and satellite addresses Names of key contacts and partners Type and size of investment sought Geographic and industry preference Company life stage preference Fund size--and much more

In addition to the directory of venture firms, authors Catherine Lister and Thomas Harnish offer a gold mine of insider tips about what venture capitalists want and how they operate. And, with the help of two highly respected law firms, they offer sample venture deal closing documents and demystify many of the typical terms and conditions.

A diskette version of the directory is included with this book. It can be loaded easily into your computer, allowing you to conduct your own custom search for venture capital quickly.

If your business is a venture capital candidate, the Directory of Venture Capital will lead you to the firm(s) that will want to fund your growth.

I was disappointed in the quality of the directory. Kennedy Information's Gold Book of Venture Capital Firms and Pratt's Venture Capital Directory are much better.

Everything I needed to know was in this book. I didn't wastetime calling tapped-out funds or people who didn't care. They also offer an electronic version delivered via email. They say don't do it, but I used the database for a personalized fax campaign Friday and Monday and received 13 reponses from cold calls in about 15 hours isn't to shabby. This is a whole lot cheaper than the directories that cost over $300 bucks.
