Angel investing · Fundraising

Anyone have thoughts about the ability to find early stage funding in Dallas Texas versus finding funding in Los Angeles?

I am moving my business, and myself, from LA to DFW. We are about to do another round, sort of a completion of our seed/angle round. Does anyone have any thoughts as to if it would be more or less difficult to find funding in Dallas?

I would think that it would depend on what type of business it is.

There are several active angel groups in and around Dallas. I believe NTAN has about 2000 investors alone. There are also a number of VCs.


I do not know much about the environment in LA, but I would expect it to be about the same with the right contacts and a business that plays well in the ecosystem. Healthcare, telecom, fin tech and energy are The staples, but we have a good number of software companies as well.

In my experience, pretty easy. There are a lot of people with big pockets who are looking into good investment. Unlike LA, there are not enough people, who can multiply their investments. I had way more issues finding good investment rather than funding. Depends on the numbers(specifically, your ROI). If you can offer a stable 5% ROI, your phone will be dying from constant calls.

P.S. Give me a call once you be in DFW

With websites now taking on crowd equity, or angel funding I wouldn't think it would matter where you are located. Tons of people look for something to invest in that cant find a good product/business. I may be interested depending on what it is and the seed amount.
