hi Greg, thanks for responding, great to have a discussion here.
I have reviewed your site at angelnetwork.com again, and here is my feedback:
- the url angelnetwork.com and the actual name Angel Investors Network has the word angel in it, in the vocabulary of an entrepreneur that means early stage investor, not advisor. So investments are handled by your members, but now you claim you don't?
- angelinvestorsnetwork seems actually more focused on the investors, not so much the entrepreneur. You seem to have an investor syndicate that allows other wealthy people to co-invest, or experienced people to help out starting companies
- as a secondary goal, you seem to "educate entrepreneurs" ?
Concluding, for me this is really confusing. You seem to focus on later stage companies for your investments (?) but I can't tell. I don't believe that you can invest in any type of business, investors need to focus on verticals.
Entrepreneurs that are working on early stage companies should not burn cash on initiatives like this, but look for advisors with relevant experience that first for free and down the road for equity are willing to help. I would not recommend members of FD to contact your organization, let alone pay $1500 for anything.
I hope this helps
