Angel Investors and the ACA

In addition to later stage VCs, startups have an old option that is getting fresh legs by being easier to navigate than before, in angel investor networks. The Angel Capital Association is a peer organization of angel investing groups in North America that includes over 250 angel groups.

The presence of such groups makes it much easier for startup companies and their entrepreneur leaders to find much needed seed capital in order to get good companies off the ground. In the past, active networking and luck might net someone that was interested in investing in a startup, but through angel networks entrepreneurs have access to literally thousands of potential accredited investors.
