Sites such as the Angel Investment Network operate in most major markets around the world, and by operating online, can help connect businesses in ways that would have been tougher in the past.

One key point for 2011 in markets around the world is that entrepreneurs are no longer approaching banks, instead looking for business angels, private equity and venture capital options for funding. But many young entrepreneurs on sites like the Angel Investment Network say that many of the leading markets around the world should help push the entrepreneurial spirit.
With the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Summit in France this October and November, one of the key topics is the slow economic growth since the recession and the lack of job creation in most markets. And the key to economic recovery in many eyes is supporting these business entrepreneurs and investing capital in what can help create jobs and build economies, whether a developed or developing nation.
To build a successful environment for this, access to business funding is key, whether from the governments, or by making angel investment and start-up investing more available to others. Being able to learn about how both entrepreneurship and investment strategies work is that extra step that new business hopefuls should certainly take. Sites such as the Angel Investment Network operate in most major markets around the world, and by operating online, can help connect businesses in ways that would have been tougher in the past.
This goes against traditional thinking where people feel that entrepreneurs need to follow specific training in order to become successful, as while knowledge is useful to obtain, the market is much more open, and entrepreneurship naturally becoming more and more part of everyday culture in this innovative and creative age.
Of course, funding is still a tough hurdle and regulation in some markets can discourage new companies from getting off the ground. Still, countries have made the costs for starting up a business a bit easier and the general attitude about this is positive. But there is still a ways to go, and making the most of that online connection via sites like Angel Investment Network can help communicate ideas further and faster, getting companies that create jobs off the ground.
