Even in a startup boom like today’s — in which just about anyone can get funded — raising money is a stressful and time consuming process.

Especially for people new to the tech world, the sheer number of VCs and angel investors out there can be daunting. Who you should pitch depends a lot on what you’re doing and how far along you are, but the information isn’t easy to come by.

ChubbyBrain, a company that does a lot of valuable research in the technology industry, just released a “Funding Recommendation Engine” that helps you figure it out. You submit some basic information about your company and team, and the Engine returns a list of investors you should reach out to. The whole process takes just a few minutes.

The Funding Recommendation Engine is still in closed beta, but our readers can use it using the code SAIfunding now, right here.

If you aren’t ready to try it out yourself, we just went through the process with an imaginary startup.

First up, explain what industry your company is in

The other obvious question: what is your funding history? Seed stage investors and series D funds are very different beasts

Have traction? Customers? God forbid, REVENUE?

Where are you, and will you move if your VCs want to keep an eye on you?
