Hi Samantha-Leigh

Good luck on this front, having some personal experiences of my own in this field, my first advice - seek offshore for your prospective VC as a first port of call. Most of the local players are "bankers" rather than venturers (depending on where in the lifecycle your business is at) - and can suffer from very poor domain understanding in certain areas. This makes it near impossible for them to assess your potential business value attributes. This does depend on your busines plan and target market approach of course. Best of luck out there!

Most of you would have seen this in the FM - but in case you missed it, there is the URL: Featuring prominantly, is "our" Justin Stanford. Not that it gives any particular cles to accessing capital but the article has elements that maybe should be included in the narrative of how risky VC is compared to other investments. I can almost guarantee losing new money in the JSE for the next little while...The Bond or money markets? with QE2, competitive devaluations, deflation/inflation/stagflation who knows?.. A sound start-up, well executed starting to look like an investment for granny's portfolio!!
