Example of an effective angel network
While there are a number of high-quality angel networks, it can be hard for both investors and companies to find the right ones. Look at Open Angel Network in Vancouver as an example, with a strong track record of company curation and investor engagement that has resulted in completed investments well above the industry average.
Wayblaze has launched to help local-centric startups through to community projects raise from the crowd. The focus is good, and what makes the platform unique is the ability for entrepreneurs to raise in all forms – rewards, loans, and equity. Take a look and review the NADA campaign as an example of a hugely successful campaign!
Another great piece on the mindset of investors from our friends at Spring family company, Oslo based Rank & File.
