Questions

What's the best way for me to go about finding an angel investor or crowd funding company?

I am looking for an angel investor or crowd funding company who would do a half hour Skype interview with me. I run courses for new natural skincare business entrepreneurs and they have some basic questions around getting investor ready.

Firstly be clear with what you are pitching exactly? If it service/ product , ask yourself why I need this service/ product? What is the pain area this service/prodcut can solved? Who are my competitors? How I am different from them? And last but not least how I can make money out of it?

Answering these on a presentation will be your next pitch deck.

About finding angel investors i would recommend www.angel.co where you can create your profile and search angels related to your industry.

Also you can pitch directly to some investors by mails.
I can teach how to get investors email id using various free tools.

If you are looking for crowdfunding platforms make sure your product's prototype is ready, you do have some bootstrap money in your pocket by which you can create attractive video pitch and run a successful crowdfunding campaign using effective digital media marketing strategy.

Kickstrter, indiegogo are best in crowdfunding.

I am an Angel Investor with vast experience in startups. I have written a complete book on startups. It's called 'Startup Easy' and that will be published next month.

I can do the Skype interview with you. I would recommend you to do it through clarity. Skype is not supported here. We can discuss move if you setup a call. Please don't hesitate to have a look at my LinkedIn profile.

I will be happy to assist.

Thanks

Hi, I am entrepreneur-investor and to answer your question: The first would be to target in what market/industry is your startup going to be. Then once you have the market/industry and the region you are working. Try to reach and connect first with the Angels - VCs that are in your area & the marketplace they invest in. Once you have them identified, try to reach them politely on their Linkedin & AngelList profiles and if they reply to you and are interested send them your business deck. Another way is to attend if you can meetups of conferences of Entrepreneurs & Business Angels whether in your area or internationally and meet them in person. Hope this can help. If you want further help or support connect with me and we can have a call and guide you.
