Well, at Blossom Street Ventures we love cold emails from entrepreneurs and my email is on our website (Your opening paragraph is everything. Your email to any VC should be no more than 1 paragraph and include only one attachment. That attachment shouldn’t be anything more than a 10 to 15 page pdf deck. Your paragraph is way more important than the deck because it’s the first thing I’m going to look at, so take one sentence to tell me what the business does, one sentence sharing the numbers you’re most proud of (revenue, users, growth, cash efficiency), and one sentence that includes your ask (for instance you’re raising $3mm at a $10mm pre). Based on that one paragraph, a VC will decide whether to move on to the deck.
Remembers the purpose of your email isn’t to get funding — no VC funds a company based on an initial email. Rather, the purpose of your email is to get a conversation. Keep it short, keep it simple, and your cold email will be well on its way to that all important first conversation.
