When browsing most investment network listings, proposals generally will be calls for investors to become involved in the funding for small business plans or company expansion. However, sometimes business angels are needed for a more niche proposal or investment plan. When browsing the Midwest branch of Angel Investment Network, investors will be surprised by the diversity of entrepreneurs and small business owners registered on the site, the wide variety of sectors and markets included within the network, and the creativity of the proposals listed. It is certainly not your average investment network.
Recently, the Omaha Storm Chasers, a Minor League Baseball team located in Omaha, Nebraska, have used sites such as the Angel Investment Network in their search for potential investors to purchase the team. The Omaha Storm Chasers features and has featured several major league prospects for the Kansas City Royals, has a fantastic legacy as a hard playing team, and is a member of the Pacific Coast League as well. The team states on the network’s website, “The Omaha Storm Chasers, the AAA affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, is up for sale and we're putting together investors to buy it.”
This interest in seeking multiple investors to come together for a large investment goal is known as crowd funding, a form of business fund raising that has become popular in recent years through digital media. Many businesses in entertainment, arts and cultural media are choosing to use group funding as their primary source of capital, which has led to the growth in this form of investment’s popularity. The general success of this form of fund raising has been well documented all throughout the web and news.
Midwest Investment Network allows entrepreneurs to cater their business proposals to whichever investment strategy they prefer, whether it is seeking crowd sourcing, a team of active investment partners, or a single silent, or “hands off”, investment partner. Businesses owners, entrepreneurs, and even baseball teams are using the network to make the most of their business goals and to obtain investment capital. Contacting a business angel or angel group could be a real home run for any prospective business.
