AI Generated Book: Breaking into VC.AI
The idea was to create a book that would help people break into VC by leveraging AI throughout the learning, interviewing, job searching, and early years of VC. However, it needs so much more work.

The List of Lists: 44 Investor Lists
📧 WITH EMAILS: 🔸 Seed & Series A US VCs (via Folk) - Filtered by Fund Type, Fund Stage, Focus, Location, Number of Investments, Number of Exits, Fund description, and Portfolio Companies 🔸 2000+ US VCs grouped by Fund stage, Fund focus, Location 🔸 NYC Early Stage VC firms list - includes some emails, - also includes a sweet spot, e.g. “need growing revenues”, “need product”, “$1M ARR” etc. 🔸Airtree’s 168+ Australian VC firms - Filter by Type, Stage Focus, Sector Focus, Lead, and Actively Investing. 🔸Ramp’s Ultimate Angel Investor List for Startups 🔎 WITHOUT EMAILS (but, you can use Apollo.io) Some of the Lists do not provide emails, however, tools like Apollo.io can help with finding the right email. I also recommend using Claude.ai to help you sieve through the lists - it’s like ChatGPT, but you can upload csv files to help you analyze the lists. The prompt I would use is the following: “I’m building a B2B Fintech startup, I work with small enterprises (>200 employees) currently raising $500k Pre Seed. We are pre-revenue, female led, and got MVP 60% complete. Looking at the attached spreadsheet, tell me which investors are most suited for me to reach out to and state their First Names, Last Names, Emails, and Company Names in a table format that I can extract into a csv” 🔸 No Warm Intro required investor list (by Y Belyayeva) - includes VCs and Angel syndicates 🔸 VC Fund Database for Early-Stage Startups (by Shai Goldman)
