« How To Successfully Approach Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists »

by Kim Lavine

Angel Investors didn’t get rich by giving away money, and they’ll gladly eat you for breakfast if you show them one iota of weakness or vulnerability in the nine to twelve months it takes them to decide to give you the money.

The way I secured this invite is worthy of mention. After the twenty-minute presentation broke up, I dashed to the front of the room and stuck my hand out to every panel member, patiently waiting when I had to, using the same Elevator Pitch I had used on the VC at the bar with every one of them.

I wasn’t going to leave until I had each one of their business cards, and they each had one of mine.This was the real value of this presentation, and I didn’t see anybody else working the room half as hard as I was to get this information.

My time for talking to the other entrepreneurs was over

I was all business. I didn’t waste Money’s time or monopolize it with rambling pointless conversation.

I got in, got out, and got home, where I immediately drafted a short, bullet-driven email of accomplishments, thanking them for their time and asking them if I could possibly meet with them to discuss the exciting opportunities further.

Believe it or not, the invitation from New Money wasn’t the first

New Money didn’t call me for at least a week, the minute after which he learned that I had met with Corporate Money...

  • The key message of the Angel Investor is that they fund start-up companies when no one else will.
  • They have a relatively patient exit strategy, which means that they do not ride you so hard or so fast for return on investment, ROI, that you kill yourself trying to get it to them.
  • Angel Investors, have a mandate to invest in companies in the specific geographical location which they inhabit, stimulating economic development in their own backyard.
  • Many Angel Investors I have met have more generous, altruistic streaks than Venture Capitalists, because they are millionaires themselves. They feel a civic and moral responsibility to give back what they had once received: a hand from above. 
  • Angel Investors have the money that most Venture Capitalists are frequently trying to get.

Angel Investors didn’t get rich by giving away money, and they’ll gladly eat you for breakfast if you show them one iota of weakness or vulnerability in the nine to twelve months it takes them to decide to give you the money.
