Angel Investors

Investment Organizations are often nonprofit associations which are designed to provide educational programs and enhanced networking for investors. Most of these organizations hold monthly meetings with networking and speakers on topics relevant to investors. Some also often programs where entrepreneurs can apply to pitch to investors for funding. Most groups are open to investors and vendors, and offer a membership program which provides for various benefits which usually include meal discounts and other membership perks.

Some groups have paid executive directors; but most rely on volunteers.  They offer programs which include: financial and economic outlook;  writing business plans, how to seek venture capital, management trends, obtaining debt and SBA financing, as well as featuring success stories of entrepreneurial companies.
