Simona Covel interviewed angel investor Knox Massey in today’s StartupJournal | Venture Capital column and produces a good practical list of what to do and what not to do when seeking angel investors.

  • Research the investors
  • Don’t expect to get funding right away
  • Network
  • Treat your initial interactions as the first step in a long-term relationship
  • Don’t forget about your long-term plan
  • Look at your investors as potential mentors.

This is well done and practical. If you are contemplating angel investment, you should read this.
