We’d previously highlighted ten San Francisco angel investors and ten Silicon Valley angel investors you may want to stalk on Twitter. Today we’re bringing it to the East Coast with ten Boston-area angel investors you may want to stalk on Twitter. For those who read our summary of Super Angels, Boston was absent from that group, but that doesn’t mean there is not an active angel investment scene in the area.
Below are links to these Boston angel investors’ profiles and their angel investment portfolios as these are key things to consider when thinking of approaching these angels (or when trying to get an introduction to one of them). Their past investments are a good predictor of the types of areas they prefer to invest in, and their biographies/profiles may help provide you a more nuanced understanding of what they look for, and what their backgrounds are.
Twitter of course is one great way to engage with these Boston angel investors and understand them in a more real-time way as you’ll get to see the kinds of content and relationships they maintain using the service. Doing all of this is part of sound investor reverse due diligence and ensuring angel investment is the right way to finance your business. And even if you determine that one of these angel investors may be perfect for your business, please refrain from business plan spam.
So without further ado, here are ten Boston Angel Investors you should learn more about. Of course, if you know more Boston angel investors, leave them in the comments and we’ll do a stalking post on them later.
