Give a boost to your deal flow.

Equity crowdfunding platforms can be an incredible source of promising opportunities, including:

But there is a problem.

More than 600+ startups raise funds on 10+ different crowdfunding platforms every single month

This is why 700+ angel investors rely on Angel Notes.

Instead of spending hundreds of hours of work every month to review 100+ pitches on 10+ platforms, let me do it for you exactly as you would do it yourself.

What Makes A Great Deal?

I'm sure you agree with me about the investment criteria I follow to select the best deals at Angel Notes:

Product
Market Fit

This is by far the most common reason that led thousands of companies to failure. If you can't find a product that the market wants and that it is willing to pay for, there is no way to become a great company.

Big
Market

It doesn't matter how good is the idea. There is still a 90% chance of failure. That's why we only invest if it is worth it. Can we make a 100x return if everything goes smoothly? If not, we're going to pass.

Growing
Market

A declining market means depressed valuations and poor long-term results. That's why I always analyze how external factors (political, economic, social, technological) will impact the market.

Scalable Business Model

Most of us don’t have three or four decades to build our fortunes. We want to do it in five to ten years, which I think is a reasonable window if you [...] do what I tell you. If you compare businesses made from atoms (like Starbucks and McDonald’s) to businesses made from bits (software), there is no comparison. In order for Starbucks to reach a billion customers, they needed to open tens of thousands of stores, which on average serve five hundred to seven hundred cups a day, according to reports. Starbucks was founded in 1971. Facebook launched Messenger in 2011 and reached one billion customers in 2016.

Healthy
Balance Sheet

We don't invest in companies that use our money to pay back debt. We want them to hire new talents, expand in new markets, and grow fast. You can't do that without a healthy balance sheet!

Competitive
Advantage

What makes the company different from the hundreds of startups out there? What's its unfair advantage?

Liquidity

Will the company have a sufficient runway after the raise? Or will it run out of business in a few months? We don't want our ownership to get diluted because the company is burning cash like crazy!

The Team

Can we trust the team? What's their unfair advantage? Do they have some industry-relevant experience? Management experience? Startups are usually made up of a few people and there's nothing more impactful than a great team.

The
Valuation

It doesn't matter how cool the company is. If we can't justify a crazy valuation, we're going to pass.

It's not easy.
But it is the only way.

Research, research, research. This is the only way to reduce risk and increase the chance of picking the next $1 billion company.

Frequently Asked Question

  • How many companies are picked each month?

    I'm constantly looking for opportunities across equity crowdfunding platforms, and I have no limit to the number of companies I invest in. Nevertheless, finding companies that meet all my investment criteria isn't easy. By looking at the past, you can expect one (sometimes two) picks per month.

  • Do you invest in each company that you pick?

    Yes, I invest in every single company that I pick.

  • Do you receive compensation from startups that Angel Notes select?

    No. Angel Notes monetization consists mainly of premium subscriptions. I don't receive any kind of compensation or commission from startups picked by Angel Notes.

  • Why have you started Angel Notes?

    Being an active angel investor, I perform in-depth due diligence for each startup I invest in. So I thought, why not leverage my own research and analysis by sharing them with fellow angel investors?

  • On what equity crowdfunding platforms do you invest the most?

    While I don't limit myself to any particular equity crowdfunding platform, I usually find the most interesting ventures on the top three portals Wefunder, Republic, and StartEngine.

  • I'm a Canadian/British angel investor, and I can't invest in some of the Reg CF platforms. Can I have a discount on the subscription?

    Yes, I offer a discount on premium subscriptions for Canadian and British investors. Don't hesitate to get in touch with me through the contact form for additional information.
