Looking for VC financing and don’t know how to reach these people? I’ve prepared a list of 12 places where you will find information about Venture Capital companies in Poland and globally:
- List of Polish VCs – This database was prepared by Inovo Venture Partners and contains information about Polish venture capital companies.
- Another List of Polish VCs prepared by the initiative of Szymon Janiak. There you will find current investments, planned, and contact to funds.
- A MamStartup Article – Not a sheet, but an extensive article with a description of VCs and their planned investments.
- OpenVC – A list of 4,000+ VC companies, completely free. First-hand data is marked as verified, so you know it’s reliable. You can send a cold email to most VCs through the platform and interactions are checked for quality and match, so VCs don’t get spammed and good founders are more easily noticed.
- Gritt – A huge list of investors available to everyone. You can download your search outcomes as a spreadsheet.
- Mercury – Founded in 2017, Mercury has quickly become a go-to depository for American startups. Their list includes the most active VCs investing in the Pre-seed and Seed stages.
- DocSend – One of the best solutions to send your pitch deck to VC. Additionally, they keep a list of active VCs in the US – completely free.
- EuroVC – Managed by Yannick Roux and Stefano Bernardi, two European investors. This list includes 700+ VC companies that invest in Europe and Israel, as well as some interesting charts and diagrams.
- First Round – A free database run by First Round Capital. You need to register to access it, but it’s worth it – 356 companies, sorted by location, investment size, and several other filters.
- Unknow – A list of 100 VCs that invest mainly in the Baltic States, complete with topics, check size, and portfolio.
- Mountside Ventures – This resource tracks forms of VCs that have recently raised funds and are most likely actively investing. They focus mainly, but not exclusively, on the UK.
- Ventroduce – A fundraising platform that focuses on European SaaS companies. Their list has a small number of funds, but it contains a lot of information about each of them and is downloadable!
