How to Find Deal Flow
Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
In running an angel group, you’ll need to set up deal-flow sources to provide quality deals to the members.
Here are some sources to consider:
Ping the members of the group regularly for deals they recommend.
Avoid the ones in which they say, “I’m not interested, but perhaps others are.”
Look for the deals that members want to invest in.
Identify investors outside the group who fund quality deals in the same sector and stage as your group and set up a relationship to share deal flow.
Follow up with your portfolio companies about deals they recommend.
Consider other angel networks in the geographic area or sector area to provide deal flow.
Talk with service providers such as attorneys and accountants about deals they see needing capital.
Join community groups that foster the sectors your group is interested in and have the members attend those group meetings.
Review online portals for deals raising funding.
Finally, establish a reputation for providing mentorship, feedback, and support to position the group as the go-to resource for startups.
