    Have a look at cmypitch.com. For investors, cmypitch.com makes the task of identifying investment opportunities much quicker, simpler and more effective. They can save valuable time by reviewing online two-minute video pitches, allowing them to not only assess the business opportunity but also the people behind the proposition – something that usually requires a time-consuming, face-to-face meeting. Pitches can be filtered by size, market sector, location and rating, and investors can receive email alerts when a new pitch is added to the site that matches their preferred criteria. Investors can also view opportunities in the business for sale channel.
    Check it out at http://cmypitch.com

    Apologies - to pitch to investors you must be from the UK for the time being, although we hope to expand this model globally shortly. There are different regulations in each region which means its taking us some time to roll this out.
    There is however a large amount of video content and information which you should find directly relevant and useful to finding investment. There are tips from some successful serial entrepreneurs on our ETV channel, and the information centres have further information to this end. Many of the information centre articles are also provided by US based entrepreneurs.

    Excellent question. There are literally dozens of sites that say they do this - but in my experience, so far, none of them seem to work. They all seemed to be designed to bypass the middleman (which is good) but the problem is that the sites seem to be filled with spammers and con artists. You should consider checking out the Angel Capital Association http://www.angelcapitalassociation.org/  They are sort of an accreditation system for Angel Capital Groups. The thing is, you don`t necessesarily want to go it alone; on of the benefits you get from being part of a group is that generally, there is some sophiostication in the group, even a financial services professional or two  - and they can help enormously with the Due Dilligence process (you WANT a financial pro as part of the process, imho. Helps mitigate the getting screwed factor). The ACA also lists every angel group in the country - but they also have a site devoted to Angel Education, and it is great. Tons of information about not getting scammed, best practices, what to expect, and a directory of service providers (like what you are looking for) etc... This should be required visiting for anyone considering throwing their hat in the ring and investing. I`ve been both an entrepreneur and an Angel. Both are hard. Beware of scams, and any website where there is a conspicuous lack of professional participation, or the whole thing is oriented toward getting you to purchase some unrelated service. Ridiculous claims, for example, while every page shows twenty google ads... I`ve even been put up on sites that I had never heard of as part of an "Investor Network" - It seems they heard I had invested in a company in the past, and they posted my email as if I was part of their service... Can u say Spam? My advice is to check out reputable organisations, see who they use, and then make your own decision. ACA is a great place to start; there are several others I`ll post when I get round to it. Hope this helps/
