Getting funding for business venture

November 3, 2008 10:33am CST
I have a really good business prospect with business plan prepared and all relevant information. Problem is,I am located in Jamaica. I have tried a number of sites that offer to hook me up with angel investors, venture capitalists etc. Most promise a lot and deliver very little. They collect upfront subscription and then leave you out in the cold at the mercy a all types of scammers and creeps. I am fed up with a lot of these. Does anyone ever had a good experience with these so called funding sites??

I would be leary of paying places like that to get started, especially someone (or place) you find online. I am not sure what resources you have in Jamaica, but are there organizations that you can go to locally? Is there a Small Business Administration or something similar? If so, I would go there and see what they have to offer. Good luck with your business venture!
