California Investment Network

Entrepreneurs - How It Works

We have created a database of investors who are regular investors in US businesses. Our site gives you access to thousands of potential investors in the US and around the globe. We charge no commission and our rates are low, so the cost to you of finding investment can be as little as $199.

We offer a fast and easy process to get your business proposal in front of investors:

Step 1: Register as an Entrepreneur

The first step in reaching investors through the California Investment Network is to register. This involves answering a few questions about yourself in our one page registration form. It is free to register and the process only takes a few minutes. What are you waiting for? Register here.

Step 2: Create A Proposal

Once you have registered, you can then login and create an investment proposal. We don't ask you for a detailed business plan, only that you answer questions that investors need to know in order to do initial due diligence on your idea and your business. When you are ready to activate your proposal, a staff member will do a final review prior to releasing the proposal to investors.

Step 3: Find Matching Investors

Once your proposal is approved, our system will cross reference your proposal information with investor preferences to determine which investors should be notified about your proposal.

Step 4: Make Contact

Once your proposal is distributed to investors, you will be notified if an investor is interested in your proposal. Please be aware that we are a match-making service only. We receive no commissions so our rates for helping you find investors can remain low. Our system gives you access to contact information of interested investors, however, we do not become involved in due diligence, negotiations, or deal structuring between you and any interested investors.

Payment Options

Option 1 Submit your investment proposal for free using our Basic Services package. When our online matching service finds an angel investor interested in your opportunity, you can then contact the investor by upgrading to our Referral Services or Premium Services packages. Your proposal remains active for 90 days and all investor contacts are included in the price of the upgrade packages, no matter how many of them there are. Please Note: If you submit your investment proposal for free, it must be 100% anonymous.

Option 2 Alternatively you can pay an upfront fee for one of our two higher grade packages (Referral Services, Premium Services) and take advantage of our enhanced services. This will increase your chances of finding investment by allowing you easier and faster access to interested investors and the use of the many premium services discussed on our rates page.

Local Investors

I work with a private equity investment group located in Southern California. We are very interested in "green" technologies and have made recent investments in water purification and wind technologies. We prefer companies that have "disruptive" products or services regardless of industry. We are not geographically constrained and have done a number of deals outside the US. We prefer companies that already have revenue, but will consider start up projects with exceptional or unique IP's. Each project is considered on its own merits. After 15 years we have access to numerous resources with investment banks, broker dealers and other related resources. There are no fees or costs for the project company associated with our investment program. If you are seeking investment or expansion capital we would be interested in reviewing your project. I am the person responsible for the initial due diligence and financial analysis of projects for the investment group.
