Sources of Capital, by Google Hits

Search: "Funded by {x}" {x} = Venture Capital 45,600 hits

{x} = Friends 24,400 hits

{x} = Family 19,900 hits

{x} = Angels OR Angel Investors 13,900 hits

Protip: Startup capital can be hard to come by. VCs, angels, friends and family and Lucifer the Archangel are all sources worth exploring.
