Partner Hunt is a service that lets investors find businesses close to them in need of funding.
For VCs and angel investors, there's often some hesitation about investing in a business if they're located in another city or country. Not only do those who invest locally feel more secure about the types of ventures they're working with, but they also gain a sense of satisfaction from helping their business community. New York's CSA+D studio has already helped funders support local artists in return for a share of the profit. Now Partner Hunt is a service that lets investors find businesses close to them in need of funding.
Acting as a listings site for all types of companies, entrepreneurs and investors, users can search for available funding or enterprises they can put their money and experience into. Investors can input their location, choose an industry preference and set a mile radius limit between 1 and 100 miles. The map then shows the companies or business ideas from entrepreneurs closest to them. Interested parties can then swap contact details to arrange a meeting or phone call.
Partner Hunt is a simple tool that lets investors quickly find local businesses in need of their support. Are there other ways to help businesses find the most relevant partners and more easily direct funds to the businesses that need it?
