This week I contacted 2 people I want to meet and got reponse from 1 so far. Here is how I offered soemthing of value.
I am organizing a dinner for Enterpreneurs interested in a particular field, with a famous VC here in Boston. I targeted companies in the field and used LinkedIn to invite these people for the dinner. In addition, I mentioned my interest in the company and asked them to meet for coffee separately. Given the fact that it has just been 2 days so far, I would consider it a success so far.
I am now reaching out to three more people today
