Earlier today FrontFundr announced a partnership with Keiretsu Forum and Keiretsu Capital Partners. I am proud about the potential this partnership will bring our organizations and our companies.
Since FrontFundr was founded in early 2014, I have been a strong advocate of collaboration between the angel community and the emerging online investing sector in private companies.
I have been encouraging angel investors to become “agents of change” and embrace the opportunity of using technology to expand the available capital pool for early stage investing. Online investing in private companies, often referred to as Investment Crowdfunding, and angel investing go hand in hand. Angel investor networks have access to companies and take them through a screening process. However, most angel networks also have a common challenge: They are constantly seeking opportunities to increase their capital pool by funding new companies.
