/EINPresswire.com/ In the finance world, an angel is a person who invests in a startup company or idea. Bringing angels and business people together has been a word of mouth and hit or miss proposition for years.
Now there’s an online meeting place where the angels can meet entrepreneurs.
GlobalAngelInvestorsNetwork.com (GAIN) takes people with a business idea and puts that idea and plan in front of people with capital to invest.
“GAIN is just
a natural fit for the internet,” said Milton Arch. “Small companies, even a one-man operation with a great idea, often don’t have the resources to travel to conventions. Even if they do, the atmosphere at those giant meetings is frenetic. An entrepreneur doesn’t have time to make a solid pitch for his idea and the investors are constantly being distracted.”
GAIN is attracting some companies with tremendous promise. For example, Hail Protector www.HailProtector.com
is a revolutionary company that manufactures a hail protective car cover with an early warning hail storm alert service that alerts owners on their mobile devices and computers. The hail protective car cover itself is proven to largely eliminate damage from hail stones even larger than softballs. Automobile hail damage, in the USA alone, is an over $1 Billion issue each year. The Hail Protector technology is a first for the Automotive Industry. It was invented and developed by Michael Siciliano and Steven Krug. "I am convinced that Hail Protector will go on to be a blockbuster company with record high sales", says Milton Arch of GAIN, GlobalAngelinvestorsNetwork.com
However, whether the company is large or very small GAIN makes things simple for Entrepreneurs. A person with a business plan outlines their idea. The information is then uploaded to the website. Those with a business idea which needs capital should contact GAIN at info@GainMarketplace.com
for more information.
“The business doesn’t have to worry about making a gaff in a presentation. They can take time to get everything right and smooth,” Mr. Arch said. “They really do get to put their best foot forward and they don’t have to worry about interruptions, delays or other hazards of a live presentation.”
An investor then can sort through the proposal at GAIN’s website and select the ideas which look most promising or are the most interesting.
“This is where GAIN really takes off,” he said. “Now investors can be anonymous. They can look over proposals without anyone else knowing what they are doing. The investor also controls the amount of contact they want to have. A request for more information can be as great or as limited as the investor wants. The investor also doesn’t feel pressured and can review the proposal as often as he wants.”
GAIN offers regular updates to investors when companies are added to the GAIN website.
Mr. Arch does say GAIN’s investment model is not for everyone. He states that investors need to have at least a net worth of over $1 million and have made $200K in income over the past two years. And that they contact their attorneys prior to making any investments. Additionally, investments in these projects/companies should be considered high risk.
