Angel Funding

PUBLIC:

This service launched today....I heard about it last week from the company (which was reaching out to bloggers in advance of the launch). While I haven't used the service (and I'm in no way affiliated with the company) it sounds pretty interesting. The company (AngelSoft) has been around for 4-ish years and provides a software solution for about 400 angel networks representing about 10K HNWI. The software is used to manage deal flow, diligence, funding and exit. Now they've launched an addition where entrepreneurs can "insert" their deal into the pipeline.

You can read more here http://www.altgate.com/blog/2008/09/p... including a video overview/demo.

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.

Angel Groups

TheFunded.com Advice

Posted by Anonymous on 2007-11-09

Tags: Funding Sources Angels

PUBLIC:

Just reading a post about having many shareholders as a result of pitching angel groups, and it got me thinking about my own experiences. In my last company, we had two separate angel groups invested with a total of nearly 50 shareholders between the two, some shareholders with just a $25,000 total stake. This presented a tremendous headache when trying to secure shareholder approval for future rounds or a the ultimate merger. Read on for some advice.

Angel Networks

TheFunded.com Advice

PUBLIC:

If you are looking at venture funding for your first round, I would suggest that you consider an Angel round first. Why" A friend of mine just got early terms to raise $1 MM for 40% of the company in their first round of funding, and it was a preferred round with all of the standard VC protections. This seems fairly aggressive for a new company with bright prospects.

There are great angel networks throughout the world that will offer MUCH more reasonable terms, and, depending on the investors that you attract, you should be able to secure the necessary advice and counsel on business decisions. You can always save the venture round for later, if needed. Members, read on for some concrete advice...
