Tips for Meeting Angel Investors

Meeting angel investors is difficult but it is possible with some patience and by utilizing diverse networking strategies.  Here are some useful ways to meet investors:

  • Obviously if you’re on this website you know that the internet is a great tool for meeting investors and learning more about your area of investment.  The internet is especially helpful in meeting angel investors because there are a number of great angel investor networks online.  For a comprehensive list of angel investor networks please see this page.
  • Another way to meet angel investors is by attending an angel investor event.  Often you are guaranteed to meet angel investors if you pay a fee and then you can even make a presentation to potential angel investors.  This can be a great way to hone your elevator pitch skills and gain valuable feedback on your business proposal from angel investors.
  • Although some people do not think that paying for a listing is beneficial, it’s one option to get your name out there and connect with angel investors.
  • Reach out to potential intermediaries that could introduce you to a high-net-worth individual or a group of angel investors.  You could ask your friends, former colleagues, law or accounting firm and anyone who may be able to direct you to some investors.
  • You could refer to a broker to arrange for you to meet angel investors but there is the possibility that the broker won’t help you find any worthwhile investors and still charge you a hefty fee–so be careful.

These are some tips to meet angel investors.  Although you may strike lucky occasionally, I think these strategies are more likely to yield results than a mass e-mail or cold call.
