Get Angel Funding From India?

TheFunded.com Discussion

Posted by Anonymous on 2008-02-24

Tags: Funding Sources Angels India

PUBLIC:

We are being invited to travel to India where apperently it is much easier these days to get some angel funding. One of us (a 2-person founding team in the US) is from India and would have strong credibility there. On the other hand, most of our market and prospects who have given us Letters of Intent (large players in the healthcare space) are all in US.

It is probably not quite as easy and also wondering if the SEC requirements etc. would cause the effort to be a huge legal and otherwise time-consuming exercise.

Also, we know of several entreprenurs - including some with deep ties to India- who have been taken advantage of by the investors, in terms of IP and market positioning.

By the way, we have gone through the usual abuse of entreprenurs by the established angel groups in the US and will prpbably shut down the business in the next 60 days if we don't get funding.

PUBLIC:

I've had a few people recommend this as a viable (and even preferable) option for us. I know there have to be others out there who are looking for honest feedback as well.

Experienced entrepreneurs - post your thoughts (as comments) on whether its a good, a bad, or (as I suspect) a conditional thing.

Outcomes of Early Stage Funding Meeting

TheFunded.com Advice

Posted by Anonymous on 2011-06-05

Tags: Early Stage

PUBLIC:

Most folks look at the funding meeting as having a “yes/no” outcome. It is much more realistic to recognize that there are many outcomes:

Funder Doesn’t Get It/ Like It:
1) Don’t get it - go away
2) Don't get it - but I'll learn more

Funder Gets It:
1) Get It, but not are my area of investment – will contact Mr./Mrs. XYZ on your behalf and suggest that they meet with you
2) Get It – I’ll give you some $$ - and I’ll let you run the company until you screw up
3) Get It – I’ll give you some $$ - and I’ll let you run the company until Point XYZ – at which time we’ll bring in a new CEO
4) Get It – I’ll give you some $$ - but I want my EIR to run it from Day One
5) Get It – I won’t give you $$ - but I like what you are doing so much I’ll
a. Tell one of my portfolio companies to do what you are doing
b. I’ll build it myself

PUBLIC:

The New York Times ran an article on the role of the business plan in venture funding. Seems to confirm the general wisdom, but interesting anyway.
