We have keen, prolific investors already but don't want carry over. We're a fast-growing global travel business. Solid Sharing Economy success story. Huge growth in US, UK, AUS. Bootstrapped to date. Nearly $3m run-rate. Imminently closing Angel / small investment round for strong but not expensive opportunities - more presenting, so looking to find additional investor(s) with strong ethical values quite quickly. Attracting interest from global organizations on all fronts. World-class team. Securing new media coverage and partnerships almost weekly. Huge market potential scalable opportunities. We're seeking a smaller investment - approx $750K (approx $400K secured so far). Not looking to compromise on control (so have rejected many VC offers). Growing M&A interest. Likely exit in next 1-2 years (though wanting to keep options open).
I co-founded an angel backed startup and currently advise several other startups on the same.
Angel Investors are a somewhat close community, so the word will spread if you get it out there. Apply to present at events like these:
1) NY Tech Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/ny-tech/). They usually have around 800 people, some of whom are Angels.
2) Keiretsu Forum (http://www.keiretsuforum.com/)
3) Gathering of Angels (http://www.gatheringofangels.com/)
4) North Bay Angels (http://www.northbayangels.com/)
If you want to discuss appropriate formats for Angel pitches let me know,
all the best,
