This could be a very valuable resource for entrepreneurs looking to make their way to the Big Apple
Many great scientific discoveries and inventions are made independently and more or less simultaneously by multiple scientists and inventors in different places in the world.
The theory of evolution, the discovery of oxygen and the invention of motion picture camera are a few examples of discoveries by different individuals, living in different parts of the world, working independently and yet arriving at the same conclusion around the same time.
So it is not surprising that a new identical list to the one that was put together by the well-known investor Eden Shochat has just emerged outside the borders of Israel, carrying the name VC Finder, and it contains such information as the typical size of investment, sector and geographical focus, past investments and more for over 230 investors in New York.
Much like Eden Shochat’s investor list, its New York-based sister helps entrepreneurs save their precious time combining all the information they need when looking for a relevant investor in New York.
The creators of the list are six investors from six different venture capital funds. Morgan Polotan from the New York Bloomberg Beta VC is in charge of updating the list. The six investors decided to join forces and curate the data in order to help connect investors and entrepreneurs in New York. They sourced the data from VC funds’ websites, as well as from personal conversations with the investors.
Even though Beta doesn’t typically invest outside of San Francisco or New York, unlike other funds on the VC Finder list, they were happy to hear that their list has an Israeli sister.
The list will be useful for Israeli entrepreneurs planning to relocate to the East Coast, as well as for those generally are looking for investors in the U.S.
