I`ve identified a few companies I plan to approach but I`m unsure about one of them. It`s a financial services firm that specializes in getting funding for particular sorts of businesses. They`re small but they`ve been around a long time, and claim something like $7 billion in financial arrangements over the years.
But you wouldn`t know it from looking at their website. It completely blows. It looks like a 1997 Frontpage template.
I do not know anyone at this firm personally; I do have the contact info for the managing director, whom I`ve never met, but who is part of an subject-based online networking group I`m in.
How would you handle pitching to this company? An email out of the blue? A phone call? My concern is that I don`t want to violate the etiquette of the networking group.
Your thoughts are appreciated!
