As a first time entrepreneur I'm looking for some advice about where to find Angel investors that are interested Edtech or E-Commerce. We've launched, have users and now need seed funding. Anyone have any resources they can recommend on this front?
Thank you in advance.
Take a look at Homebrew, they are seed investors with a focus. http://www.homebrew.co/
I saw Hunter Walker speak a few months ago on their mindset and I believe have a different mentality than many seed investors and give credit for those trying to help the world as well.
I would start with your banker who may know of an angel group locally or elsewhere in your state. There are some angel websites. You could also try a stockbroker or insurance rep. They are all in the financial services field.
Thank you Sean and Bill, both great suggestions, I am going to explore all recommendations immediately.
If you are looking for formal seed investors (vs local angels), check out ed specific groups and programs including: Village Capital, Imagine K12 (part of Y combinatory), Reach Capital, ARC capital and others. There are also some local accelerators etc including Boom Startup - an edtech accelerator in Utah and Upenn has a strong program in ed entrepreneurship. I am a former ed tech investor (Intel Capital). There is a lot more money in this sector than previously, but its also a lot less formalized vs other tech startup areas.
