Does Your Angel Investor Want A Hug?

A new book tells writers and would-be entrepreneurs how to win over the heart and wallet of an angel investor: What Every Angel Investor Wants You to Know, by Brian S. Cohen and John Kador (McGraw Hill Education).

Wouldn’t it be nice if someone could give you funding to experiment with launching your big idea?  It wouldn’t be a loan, but rather, an investment.  If it fails, you owe nothing.  Of course, angel investors want to minimize their risks and maximize their opportunities for rewards, so they seek to invest in people and companies they believe will offer a nice pay out.

The book clearly lays out the types of questions and needs most angel investors will have.  It includes various lists, such as:

-       10 practices of highly effective entrepreneurs
-       8 questions investors should ask someone before giving money
-       Tips for perfecting your elevator speech
-       Issues that angels think about prior to investing
-       6 models of crowdfunding

Not surprisingly, angel investors look for integrity, experiences, and vision in the people they invest in. But the book details what investors are thinking and feeling as they explore working with others to find their dreams. 

If you think you have a good idea for a book, product or service and need some money to get it going, you should consult What Every Angel Investor Wants You to Know.  It could make a big difference in whether others will invest in you.
