The money is not for me but for the company we are going to own, and I have a business and marketing plan with in depth analysis. Its for launching an online sportsbook and live casino.

    Hi, Andre:

    What country are you in? It is illegal to operate an online sportsbook in the U.S.

    Thanks, the company will be based in Malta and of course I m not going to take bets from the USA and any other jurisdiction where online gambling is considered illegal. However its legal in most parts of the world, so there is a huge market for this.
    Moreover I have as a project further the idea of entering into the Indian, Pakistan and Bangladesh markets offering betting on cricket as none sports book in the world offers this service. And much much more.

    If you have a product and have incorporated a company, I would recommend to list your company at startup directory like AngelList (AngelList) so that your company profile can be found by VCs, angel investors and you may be approached by them if your product/idea is sound enough.

    On the other hand, equity crowdfunding is also a choice nowadays. You can find a list of SEC-registered equity funding portals via the FINRA's website:

    Angel investors are high net worth individuals who are interested in helping small startups financially. They provide similar startup financing as venture capitalists but in smaller amounts.

    Finding an investor depends on the funding stage you are at - are you looking for seed money? Series A? Further than that? 

    If you're in the early stages, which your question suggests, you could start looking for potential investors in your region, or your country, in case the region is too small. Attend networking events, meet other startup founders regularly and ask them where they go for funding. Try to get through to the line of investors who could potentially be interested in joining you - pitch your startup's mission, and take their feedback very seriously. Chances are, they know the situation much better than you, and can offer not only money but a whole lot of valuable advice.

    Alternatively, you could also go on platforms like AngelList and source for potential investors there, however, it'll probably be a lot harder to get someone's attention.

    I also like the idea of applying to Y Combinator, 500 Startups, other accelerators or business plan competitions. All these are great ways to get started, and get some money & advice early on.
