I have been a successful prop trader on a desk w/in a large house for 6+ years. Now my partner and I are looking to either start our own fund, or receive a capital allocation from a prop firm or existing hedge fund shop. Right now we could go the friends and family route to raise money, or approach the seeders/incubation people. I was wondering if anyone has any advice/experience with these issues, any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone has a list of prop shops that allocate capital to experienced traders, could you post it or shoot it to me, thanks.
