Insights from Proteus
Research, Findings, Best Practices, and Humor
Tempo.ai released an infographic that gives us a sneak peak into the work (and personal) lives of VCs. A great resource if you're a founder looking to raise a bit of spare change.
Tempo's 3 biggest tips?
1. Tuesdays are the best day of the week to propose a meeting - Later in the week is usually already booked, and most VCs reserve time on Mondays for internal meetings. Tuesdays are your best shot to score that meeting.
2. If you're having trouble getting a response, email early or call late - Tempo found that most VCs open, read and respond to emails between 6 and 8 AM, so that's when you can get their attention. Also, calling between 5-7 PM seems to yield the best chance for a response.
3. If you're having trouble finding a time slot for a meeting, suggest a breakfast/brunch meeting, or a sushi dinner - The reasons for this are pretty self explanatory, everybody likes food.
