Questions

Can you recommend a good resource to find Angel Investors other than Angel List?

We have keen, prolific investors already but don't want carry over. We're a fast-growing global travel business. Solid Sharing Economy success story. Huge growth in US, UK, AUS. Bootstrapped to date. Nearly $3m run-rate. Imminently closing Angel / small investment round for strong but not expensive opportunities - more presenting, so looking to find additional investor(s) with strong ethical values quite quickly. Attracting interest from global organizations on all fronts. World-class team. Securing new media coverage and partnerships almost weekly. Huge market potential scalable opportunities. We're seeking a smaller investment - approx $750K (approx $400K secured so far). Not looking to compromise on control (so have rejected many VC offers). Growing M&A interest. Likely exit in next 1-2 years (though wanting to keep options open).

I co-founded an angel backed startup and currently advise several other startups on the same.

Angel Investors are a somewhat close community, so the word will spread if you get it out there. Apply to present at events like these:
1) NY Tech Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/ny-tech/). They usually have around 800 people, some of whom are Angels.
2) Keiretsu Forum (http://www.keiretsuforum.com/)
3) Gathering of Angels (http://www.gatheringofangels.com/)
4) North Bay Angels (http://www.northbayangels.com/)
etc.

If you want to discuss appropriate formats for Angel pitches let me know,

all the best,

The best source is friends and family. It will be easier and not nearly as costly. Secondly, look for crowdfunding.
