9 Angel Websites to Find Investors for Your Startup
May 7, 2021

If your idea needs funding, the best place to start is an Angel investor. 

They’re generally individuals who have the ability to provide startups with significant amounts of capital, usually in exchange for some equity in the company.

Unlike venture capitalists, angels don’t often require management or board seats on their investments which means that they can be more hands off and let founders have full control over their companies without any interference from those pesky VCs!

Angel investment is also often called seed investment. It’s designed to grow your idea to either build version 1 of your idea so you can gain revenue, or more typically to get a 1st round of funding. The Angel can then either take their money out plus a profit or stay with your startup.

But how do you find an Angel investor? Here’s some websites that will hopefully make it easier and faster for you go out and nab some of these elusive, yet much needed, funds. But don’t exclude existing networks (it’s ALL about the network!) either locally or on LinkedIn.
As well as using a network to reach out to the Angel, I highly recommend that you research them and try and find, and make a personal introduction to those that seem to match your vision and marketplace before you request funding from one or more of them. Doing your research now will increase your chances of obtaining the funding that you need to grow your startup.
It’s a time for the sniper rifle, not the shotgun!
