Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
In running an angel network, it’s important to set up several sources of startups seeking funding called deal flow.
The best source is the angel group members.
Continually check with your members to see what deals they’ve seen or heard about.
Other sources include the following:
Incubators and accelerators often have deals, although most of the startups tend to be a little early for most angel investors.
Venture capital investors in your area see many startups that are not an exact match for their fund but are good venture investments.
Local universities may be a source of startups out of their development programs.
Service providers see startups looking for funding and can provide a referral to the group.
Online funding portals are also a source of deal flow.
Finally, the angel network’s website may attract startups looking for funding.
Set up a number of deal flow sources and track which ones provide the best startups for your group.
