About the VC Connection

The VC Connection is a division of the Email Connection (AKA: Publishers, Agents & Films), which has been connecting writers and filmmakers with publishers, agents, and film industry contacts for over 17 years. We are located in Lafayette, California.

From time to time the company has also made connections in other industries, including the music industry, games and toys, law enforcement, the media, and venture capital.

It now has spun off the VC Connection as a separate service that connects entrepreneurs and business owners with venture capitalists and angel investors.
