Note: we haven’t included angel investors in this list, just Venture Capital firms, but there are many amazing angel investors out there who will take part in seed rounds. We recommend Angel List as the best place to source angel investors…and good old fashioned introductions from a trusted connection to get in contact with them (the same holds true for VC’s).
