How do I find an investor? - Creating a 45-Second Pitch Video for Angel Investors - Money for a Startup - Ren Carlton

How do I find an investor? As our workplace becomes more offsite, remote, and virtual, sending a pitch video is becoming one of the standards for talking to investors. The challenge is that your video pitch cannot gauge a response or answer questions. How can you make an effective pitch when sending a video recording is your only way in? After listening to thousands of videos, I have accumulated a number of tips for founders interested in pitching their ideas to investors.


How do I find an investor using a video?  First the basics:


-Decent video and sound quality - this does not need to be perfect, but your video should be easy to see and hear
-If you are going to use slides or text, use illustrations or 10-15 words max per slide
-Practice your pitch until you have it nailed
-Be interesting
-Be concise, clear, and conversational
-Avoid jargon, complexity, jargon, and platitudes
-Meet the submission requirements (e.g. when we ask for a 45 second pitch video, do not send us a 3 minute pitch video.)
-Upload your video to YouTube, without password protection
-Email your pitch with the YouTube link and the actual video file as an attachment
-We encourage you to send us any supporting information you have about your business with your video pitch, e.g. website, social media links, videos, slide deck, business plan, projections, 1-page executive summary.
-Email address:  Ideas@moneyforastartup.com
-Email subject:  45 Second Pitch Video - Company Name


Your 45 second pitch video should include the following:

-Your name
-Your company name
-What your business does
-The problem you are solving
-Your solution
-Why we should take you and your solution seriously
-How much progress/traction you have made so far
-How much money you need
-Why you need the money
-Show your product or service, if possible


Send us your pitch today for a chance to find up to $5 Million of Funding for your business, Funding@OmegaAccelerator.com

Qualifications for Angel Investors



Previously, the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) required Angel Investors to meet their definition of an accredited investor. The general rule was that an Angel had to have a net worth of at least $1 million and make $200,000 a year.
The concept that the SEC released states that an accredited investor is someone whose “financial sophistication and ability to sustain the risk of loss of investment.”

They went on further to add that an accredited investor can be one of the following (among other various requirements):

  • A bank, registered broker-dealer, an insurance company, a registered investment company, or a business development company.
  • A private business development company.
  • A tax-exempt charitable organization, corporation, or partnership with assets in excess of $5 million.

On top of these new changes, there have also been changes to equity crowdfunding rules through the JOBS Act. Because crowdfunding has become so popular, it means that small startups no longer have to rely on accredited investors to receive funding.

Now, companies can accept up to $1 million in funding through equity crowdfunding. To protect investors, individuals can only invest up to 10% of their annual income or net worth. There isn’t a minimum amount required in order to invest this way.

What do all of these changes mean? Practically anybody who has the wealth to make investments and wants to reap the benefits can technically become an Angel Investor.
