Raising Seed and Startup Capital From Angel Investors

Who are angel investors?

They are typically entrepreneurs themselves. Angel investors differ from venture capitalists in that they are investing their own hard-earned money into your company rather than that of institutional investors. They usually invest in the range of $25,000 to $250,000.

Here is some important advice if you are pursuing angel investors. Don’t waste your time chasing investors more than an hour’s drive from where your company is situated. Both angel and venture capital investing are face-to-face relationships. If something starts to go wrong at an investment, the investor wants to be able to reach it in no more than an hour’s car commute. They do not want to have to jump aboard a plane to hold an impromptu meeting with management team.

It never ceases to amaze me how many first time capital seekers waste money couriering business plans overnight to a party on the opposite coast after the briefest of telephone or email conversations. They are then shocked to discover that even small deals require multiple face-to-face meetings which they cannot afford.

  • Hello, If there are any true Angel Investors out there I beg you to take a look at my organization Mystic Rose Social Service. Eight years of serving communities in the state the business resides in as well as others, my census of serving individuals and families has now reach over 7000 and rapidly increase due to these hard economic times. I have invested in individuals keeping there homes to putting homeless in homes, providing food, clothing, volunteer services, paying for individuals to see doctors, elderly care and these just name a few. Mystic Rose Social Services mission is to enhance the lives of those it serves by meeting the comprehensive needs of individuals, families, and the community through a partnership of programs that provides accessible education and health and human services of the highest quality. We have serve others as our mission states to the highest quality. I have never receive a government grant or ask for donations because I am able to work and make money by selling Insurance, grant writing, consultations, business plans, as well as social workers contracting out. This is how I have been able to maintain good community resources and giving back to the communities I have even put up my own vehicle and house to get the money to keep someone else from starving and been homeless. I am not here to tell a sad story but I really need an investor. I have proven paperwork or you can just Google the company’s name, it will be the proof needed. I started this business on my front porch August 8, 2008 in the first three months I was serving over 500 families. On August 21, 2013 I was told buy the property owner Mystic Rose address you have until the 23 to get our things and get out of my building. I was 1 month behind and was not giving a writing notice. I was out of the building on the 23 with no where for the Agency to go. All I am asking is for an Angel to Invest in our organization a facility. We work very hard and we just receive a contract with Texas Health & Human Service that if we don’t get help soon we will loose it. The reasons rent was not paid is because we do not receive nothing but the money I work for, I have been carrying this Agency off of my income that I earn and my husband income that is giving to me to support my own household. Well I do know that if God willing it will only be an Angel that will come to our aid. Thanks
