Marketing a strategy/track record

Hello,
From talking to people and reading articles it seems like the best way to break into true trading, is by demonstrating a viable track record with strong metrics. I would like to hear any suggestions regarding the best way to market such a track record to try and be funded by a bank or fund.
One specific concern is regardless of a strong strategy and metrics of performance, is there any way or what is the best way to deal with the track record only being a few thousand dollar? Even if the algorithm is scalable a large book value is much easier to market.

I have spoken with a few multimanager funds with some decent response. The book value has been an issue.
Are there any funds or prop firms known to be more receptive? Is the best approach just to bombard any firm with a track record and letter? Thanks.
