If you are asking about the paperwork to consummate a deal - then it will depend upon the type of transaction. If you are dealing with a "professional" angel - they may well present you with a term sheet that leads to an agreement, which will then be finalized by a legal document such as a stock purchase agreement. 

Depending upon the specific situation, one could also use a Subscription Agreement. These are typically a part of a Private Placement Memorandum (PPM)

However, unless you are using a PPM - you will need some documents prior to the agreement. Typically, an executive summary which you will use to get interest, then a business plan for those interested parties to review.


Hope this helps. Feel free to drop me a PM or contact me directly, if you want to discuss your specific situation.

I genuinely appreciate your sharing the link where President Obama helps Black business with Two $1 Billion Initiatives for Impact Investing and Early-Stage Seed Financing

The paperwork is likely to be contingent upon the individual angel...I'd get to know them first...and then, ask them what paperwork they need....

I would like to introduce myself, I have a Healthy gourmet pie business, which I am ready to take my business to the next level of a large commercial kitchen and open up a couple of stores..and I need some help. Is there anyone who would be willing to let me rehearse my script, as I start to ask people for money?

ProNet Career Resources is in desperate need of some funding.  Not asking for a lot of money, just enough to get gas cards for our attendees, perhaps a few meals for unemployed professionals and administrative needs.  We are all volunteers.  We do have our 501c3 non profit status.  I am an unemployed recruiter and I too am a volunteer.  We are having major financial problems (at home as well as organizational) and our stress levels are at an all time high.  Can you help us?  Our web site is and my linkedin site is  Write me at if you feel that something has to happen to help our unemployed professionals in Central Florida and elsewhere as we now cover the country.  Thanks in advance.
