Start Up ideas - where to look for
« on: February 05, 2019, 11:49:51 PM »
I am interested in exploring investing in start ups and looking for forums to look for ideas. I have not done investing in start ups before.
One I found is startup grind but it is mostly seems to be software/apps and very few of other types of ideas.
https://www.startupgrind.com/startups-title/exhibitors-2019/

Any suggestions of any other forums such as start up grind but has more variety ideas.

Thanks a lot

Are you looking for ideas to start or potentially fund startups to execute or are you looking for existing startups with an idea and product that need funding to grow?

For the latter Angel List is a good place to start, as is Gust.com, Crunchbase - most companies regardless of their stage will create a profile there and you can search through their database by various category. Even Reddit's startup subreddit can be informative.

The former is likely best accomplished through local meetups and events where you can better get to know potential startup founders.

I have invested in startups.

I would suggest joining an angel investing group. It can provide a great opportunity to learn how to invest in startups and network with other angel investors.
