Angel Investor Wanted

Filed under: Venture Capital Angel Investors Private equity blog — admin @ 1:28 am

You have started your business using your own savings, as well as money from family and friends. Getting a loan from the bank has proved to be extremely difficult, almost impossible, given the current economic aspects and the high risks to which a start-up is exposed. What alternatives do you have? Well, to secure a meaningful cash investment, the suitable option is an angel investor. Your foray may not imply a fast and easy process, as they usually accept to fund company owners that have been referred to them. If you lack the necessary contacts, do no give up, you can use an angel finance directory that will help you select the right funding sources.

Angels place their own money in ventures with great potential, in exchange for a high return on investment. Besides money, knowledgeable investors bring added value to the enterprise, steering it in the right direction. That means you will also benefit from strategic mentoring, such as management advice. These investors get involved in the community, contribute to creating jobs, their reasons for helping start-ups get off the ground being sometimes beyond monetary returns.

How do you use an investor directory? What are they key elements you need to give heed to? First of all, consider angels that are situated within maximum 100 miles away from your offices. You will need permanent advice, especially if you don’t have enough business experience and unpredictable situations may occur anytime. A short distance will enable your partners to be physically present in order to provide expertise. Do not expect angels dealing with other realms of investment be interested in your venture; instead, select investors that know your sector and have already funded other similar companies.

How will you persuade angels to invest? Be passionate about your idea, attune your strategies to current market trends, prove a realistic projected revenue growth and great commitment to your venture, define your competitive landscape, avoid far-fetched financial predictions and be transparent, you will need to establish a high-quality long-term relationship.
