I have a product that I've determined appeals to funded startups specifically at this point in their lifecycle. How do I get in front of them to pitch? I'm in San Francisco, so personal meetings are ideal.
1. I would attend Demo days for startups and plant seeds there. Attending meetups can be very helpful as well.
2. Subscribe to Crunchbase. When you see certain companies have raised certain about of money reach out to them. You can go cold or through an introduction.
I am a firm believer in doing whatever it takes. If you don't have an intro then go cold. If you don't try you will never know.
