With funding, Elon Musk can launch a car into space. Without funding, we can't launch our car out of our driveway...

Have you confirmed that you can offer shares publicly via groups?

Comment by Robert Johnson on May 25, 2011 at 3:28pm


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....
