65 VC Firms and SaaS Angel Investors to Fund Your B2B Startup

If you want money, ask for advice, and if you want advice, ask for money. – Unknown

When raising money for your B2B startup, it’s important to realize that, beyond terms, B2B investors won’t all bring the same value to your business.

Some investors will be very involved while others will not. Some will open gates for you, help recruit top employees, show you the ropes, and remain solid partners all throughout the life of your startup. And again, some will not.

In B2B, the best investors understand how B2B and B2C startups differ, they have connections in your industry, and know what it takes to win in B2B. Those investors can significantly improve your odds of success.

To help you find the right partners, I’ve put together a list of SaaS angel investors and partners at leading VC firms actively investing in B2B SaaS companies. This is a list I wish I had when we raising money for Psykler.
