If you don’t see your particular question listed or answered below, please contact a member of our team directly.

  • 57% United States
  • 29% Europe (6.7% UK)
  • 6% Canadian

Question: In what format does the directory come in? Why is it not available online?

Answer: Our Angel Investor Directory comes in Microsoft Excel format which can also be used within Google Docs software which is 100% free for anyone to use regardless of where you are based. We have found that this format is the most user-friendly and it allows our customers to easily upload this spreadsheet into their own Customer Relationship Management (CRM) or Investor Relationship Management (IRM) systems.

We deliver the Angel Investor Directory to you in this format because we have found there are fewer issues than with subscriptions associated with online databases. For example, with our solution can upload your copy of the Angel Investor Directory to your CRM programs, and you can sort, move, and add notes to any of the contacts in our database. Another benefit of the Excel format is that you get it more quickly than if we had mailed you a disc in the mail, and you are free to keep this spreadsheet for as long as you would like. Whereas website access can be cut off any time, once you purchase our Angel Investor Directory you may use it in your business for years to come.

 

Question: Does your firm provide a refund if we can’t raise assets through using this database of contacts? What is your refund policy?

Answer: While we do provide refunds for bad data, we do not provide refunds for any lack of capital raised. Data included in our database is publicly available, however our team has spent over 700 hours compiling, sorting, updating, and organizing so that it can be easily used within almost any CRM system or as a standalone capital raising or career management tool.

Once the database has been purchased and delivered, the full value has been realized and we cannot provide a refund once the transaction has been completed. The exception to this is if we provide you with bad data; in this case, we provide an industry leading 4X pro-rated refund on all entries that contain outdated or bad data. This means if 10% of the listings contained errors you would receive 40% of your money back.

These refunds are uncommon but when they do occur it helps us further improve and update our listings so we encourage you to provide us with your feedback. We have refined this database dozens of times to get our directory to where it is now, and this level of accuracy and completeness is what makes our database valuable. Nobody else offers a 4X pro-rated refund policy on any type of Angel Investor Directory.

 

Question: How many listings do you have in California and New York, for example?

Answer: We get a lot of questions about how many angel investors our database has within various states. For statistics on every state in the US, broken down into two halves, please see the pie charts provided below.

Question: How did your team build this database? Why should we pay for a database that at least partially relies upon publicly available data?

Answer: Our team of two researchers and five total professionals built the Angel Investor Directory in two ways: by receiving permission from firms and professionals to publish their contact details to our database and by collecting data from publicly available websites. We believe this product is worth $500-$1,200 to individuals seeking film funding sources in the industry because it would take at least 200-250 hours of research to create an internal database on your own. It took our team over 700 hours to build and maintain this resource, and you can now leverage our work through purchasing it on our website here.

 

Question: How often is the information in your database updated? When was the last update made?

Answer: Our database is updated twice a year, about every 6 months.

Question: Do you have a sample of the directory that I can review before purchasing?

Answer: Yes, please click here to view an extracted sample of the directory.

 

Question: Why does your firm only release 100 copies of each version of the Angel Investor Directory? Isn’t that bad for business?

Answer: While it is bad for business over the short term, we see it as a necessity. For us to offer a valuable, exclusive resource over the long-haul, we must keep distribution low. By slowly releasing only 100 copies of this resource with each version we release, the data becomes more valuable to our clients.

 

Question: What information is provided for each of the listings in the Angel Investor Directory and database?

Answer: The Angel Investor Directory offers a collection of inclusive contact details for firms and professionals from around the globe. These inclusive contact details include the following information when available:

  • Name of the firm
  • Contacts Phone Number
  • Contact Email Address
  • Physical Addresses that can be sorted by Country, City, State, or Zip Code
  • Website Address
  • AUM
