I'm helping a buddy out now for his PE fund capital raising, and he's asked for help for a London roadshow. I'm in Asia and have nearly no London connections. It's pushed me to start looking at Linkedin Sales Navigator and Hubspot to source leads and then track the process, respectively. Keen to hear your guys thoughts.
It's of course easier to set up a roadshow in a city where you have a network. A few well-placed emails, and you're good to go.
But how do you guys go about sourcing leads in a new city where you have no contacts? I was thinking of hiring a virtual assistant to help me on Linkedin, just find new suitable LPs and try to strike up a relationship, with the idea of getting the next roadshow there right. All advice welcome. I'm being open, and showcasing my ignorance/weakness here with you lot.
