    I like in person, go with people you have contact with, write up a business plan and present it to them.

    I've never tried to round up money for online ventures, yet.

    You could always float it with Credit cards....

    Well, that's interesting because the other day I saw someone asking people to donate $1 because he needed $10,000-$20,000 to start up his website.
