Get connected

In the start-up word networking is a key component, not just to exchange with other founders, but also to make appropriate contacts that can support one's goals. In addition, the conversionrate of convincing an investor is much higher during a casual networking conversation than a standard text message. So take the chance and visit start-up events.
