How can I find a startup in LA to invest in?

Antonio Foncillas Multicultural entrepreneur looking for investing opportunities in Los Angeles

December 14th, 2019

Hello Everyone,


I’m currently in the market and looking for a good opportunity to invest some of my savings. Ideally I would like to find a project in Los Angeles where I can invest and get partially involved in. I can spend the winters in LA and work remotely during the summers.I am a native Spanish speaker and my English fluent. I have multicultural education and career,having studied in several countries and worked in quite a few as well.


I am open to most fields as long as I like the product and the people and I can be a good asset.


If you know of something that may fit what I’m looking for I would love to know about it. Additionally if you can give me any leads to do some research on my own I would really appreciate it.


Best personal regard

Alex Nguyen I have an idea to create a free advertising platform, looking for tech geniuses to be co-founders

January 1st, 2020

What do you think about a social platform that offers free advertising? With additional features and options to be added to help businesses drive traffic to their stores and to increase user base and user engagement? I’ve work on this idea for some time now and I have a business plan and an execution plan as well. I’m currently looking for a couple developers to create an mvp and to turn this idea into a product. Message me on here if you’re interested. I’m not from LA though, I’m from Pittsburgh.

The recommendations made a solid, but it depends on how much you're interested in investing and your expectations.

Try getting in touch with local accelerators, chapters, University entrepreneurial clubs,VCs.


Platforms like launchrock, cofounders lab and even apps like crowdcube get you connected digitally.


You can explore the Government funded accelerators and programmes or even those initiated by the Government. In your case you can think of the Spanish government's policies and investment in LA and those of LA's in Spain. (state rules of LA would apply)


If there is any particular area you are interested in to invest in, then read up on it and follow the news on the same.


All the best.

My recommendation is to choose a platform for small investors or micro-lending that already has a reputation and tools for matching you with opportunities. Although I have no direct experience, the one I run into often is AngelList.


A micro-lending site called Kiva is one that some friends of mine have used in the past.


Remember that you may need to prove your qualifications as an investor.

I think it would be advisable to first narrow down your market scope and decide which sectors you are looking to invest in as it could really take you 'down the rabbit hole'. Choosing areas of passion and interest is always a good starting point.
