Acquiring capital for a new venture can be frustrating and time consuming. from working with entrepreneurs over the past 10 years, we've determined that the "how' is as big a success factor as where . We've also determined the vast majority of capital support for an early stage business is received from the entrepreneurs "extended" network.
If your "network" isn't able/willing to help you, then I would focus on "building your constituency"-first.
Hope this helps. good luck.
