We just started a funding round at Angels Den. So far no one has pitched in, and that´s understandable since we just started.
However, I´d like to get a first investor there as soon as possible in order to "break the ice" and get the funds asap.
Any ideas on how to get this first person?
Hi. In general, I subscribe to the numbers approach - the more outreach you perform, the better your odds for success. In a brief review of your profile on Angels Den, my initial reaction is that your product has a niche market appeal - I would want to know more details about how you plan to acquire customers, what traction you have thus far, etc. Pricing feels loose and high vs. perceived benefit. What coverage does your tech have - I can't tell how complete of solution this is? The pitch materials are a good start, but I don't yet see a strong cohesiveness. I also wonder where else you are pitching, as Angels Den does not appear to have a very wide audience. If it were me, I would build a sales database of potential customer leads, as well as investors to pitch to, directing them to Angel Den when warranted, etc.
Why don't you offer to name the project after the first investor - or seed it yourself via a family member or friend with a different last name?
Hi Al. What have you done to promote your presence on Angels Den thus far?
