Here's a 15-minute video regarding fundraising for your start-up excerpted from an SMU presentation on Venture Capital.
Most of the countries and some of the cities around the world have started enforcing wearing face mask and social distancing in public. Artificial Intelligence (AI) based technology can play a vital role to enforce these rules and help in flattening the curve.
Edgetensor provides state-of-the-art AI technology on low power edge devices that can detect people wearing mask, measure temperature and monitor social distancing.
Aristos Ventures has compiled and continually updates a listing of venture capital firms, angel groups, accelerators and co-working spaces in Texas. These represent active investors and others but does not include family offices, individual investors or private equity. Aristos Ventures does this in the spirit of good faith and camaraderie. However, we would prefer for early stage technology entrepreneurs to contact Aristos Ventures first to discuss their start-up. For the complete hyperlinked listing, please visit:

Here is a listing of the secret venture capital tools I use at the office:
In house tools, models and other
Apple 27” Thunderbolt Monitor
Apple MacBook Pro 15” (3.1 GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 2TB SSD)
AWS (several tools)
Google Domains (DNS: SPF, DKIM, DMARC)
MS Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint)
macOS High Sierra
Axios Pro Rata
Dallas Business Journal
Google Alerts (with RSS too)
MIT Tech Review
The secret is that there is no secret tool. Venture investing is hard research and diligence, utilizing years of experience as an engineer and at venture firms seeing thousands of companies. Anyone can write a check to a startup company, but the hard part is determining which company to fund and then helping the entrepreneur grow the business.
