IMPORTANT: the last thing you want to do is send unsolicited, mass emails to these people. the likelihood of getting *any* response is low. instead, research what are their interest areas, and approach the appropriate ones, *individually*. otherwise, you are just ruining for everyone. removing contact info is just one click away for them.

1. Before Contacting People - Do your Research

10
2. Before you send any emails - ready below - suggest email framework:
11
Why do you contact me in the place? Why me?
12
Who are you
13
What do you do
14
What do you want
15
What’s in it for the person you contact
16
17
3. Email Tips:
18
Create an email contrarian to what this person receive
19
The best way to get a meeting is not to ask one, let the person decide
20
There is always a reason not to send an email - sent it.
21
If you have nothing to offer, don't ask
22

4. Don't "spray and pray". Spamming the list will just make you a bad name. Remember everyone knows everyone.

5. All things equal people prefer to do business with people they know. Even if all things are not equal they still prefer to do business with people they know.
26
The chance of you getting a meeting without a personal referral is much smaller. So do your research and find out who can connect you. Linkedin, Twitter, WeChat and Facebook are your friends
27
28
6. Don't waste people's time. Be prepared with answers why you think they are a good fit, before you send the first email. Like said above do your research
29

7. Get your name out there, so when you contact people there is a good chance they have heard about you.
31
Go to meetups, Talk to people, help other startups, in sum "get your name out there"

8. Contribute to the community: give first, then ask
