No one knows better than angel investors what they want to see from a company they’d consider investing in. Mike Lebus, Director of Angel Investment Network, has been sharing his knowledge to help those people looking for angel investors to get the greatest chance of finding the right angel investor for you. He also has a few tips of how to avoid being taken advantage of by unscrupulous people playing on the hopes of those business entrepreneurs with great ideas.
A lot of aspiring entrepreneurs make similar mistakes that are easy to rectify, a lot of which are down the phrasing of your business proposal. Angel investors see many business proposals and are able to quickly spot mistakes that they have seen time and again.
Great examples of these are found in Mike’s “50 Quick Tips on Raising Angel Funding”. These include making very general statements, since they don’t give the investor an accurate picture of what you are proposing. Mike also provides specific examples of lines that many entrepreneurs use, which angel investors might not look on favourably when reading a business proposal.
Angel investment involves a lot of interaction between the investor and the entrepreneur, and Mike has advice on what type of qualities will endear you to a future angel investor. There are also things that you can work on, beyond the wording of your proposal, to help impress that ideal angel investor that you want to work with. This can include making sure that you have done a lot of research into your market and competitors so that you can present accurate facts and figures.
