Life's too short to not do awesome things

Can you introduce me to angel investors?

I get this question a lot, from people I know and don’t know.

From people I don’t know at all, sorry I can’t help.

From people I do know well and would vouch for, here’s what I send people:

First I suggest reading this http://www.danshapiro.com/blog/2011/09/dont-ask-for-introductions-to-investors/

And then come up with a list of all your competitors and companies in your space generally and find out who invested in those companies through CrunchBase or AngelList. Investors tend to have a market based view on things and investors who have invested in your space are more likely to be interested in what you are doing.

If there is anyone on the list you come up with that I know well enough, happy to do intro’s.
