Resources for Angel Investment Seekers

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a seminar conducted by U-Start, led by Peter Pritchard from CEG entitled "Funding Continuum for Start-up & Early-Stage Firms". Excellent information for startups about the practical aspects of the funding process. Anyhow, I gained a few excellent resources for solid information about angel investments:

Angel Capital Association: a professional association focuses on networking and sharing of best practices among these angel organizations. This site has a rather comprehensive list of angels nationwide, broken down by state

New York Angels: self-described as a forum in which its members can exchange information about investment opportunities in early-stage technology and emerging growth companies in the Northeast and to provide administrative support as its members help such companies to grow to market leadership. The section for "resources" has an invaluable slide-by-slide breakdown of what angels typically want to see.
