Map of Silicon Alley's Early-Stage Tech Investor Ecosystem (updated)

If this is your first visit you may wish to follow me on twitter, subscribe to my RSS feed or subscribe via email.


This is part of my various Series on Venture Capital and Angel Investing.

In that I am a heavy user of mapping software and think programs like MindNode are excellent visual aids, I decided to put together a first draft of the early-stage tech investor ecosystem here in Silicon Alley as a resource for entrepreneurs. As this is a first stab, I would ask your help in the comment section of this post letting me know about any early-stage investors I have left out and/or about any corrections of errors you come across on this map.

As the print is quite small due to the size of this map, simply click on it and it will open in a separate window. You may then use your zoom feature or simply click it again to enlarge once more at that point.

Looking forward to your feedback.
