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.

I am part of small well connected independent investment consultants with like-minds who have been involved in either owning or investing in small businesses. Being involved in several successful projects, I am posed to take up any entrepreneur business plan that sums up to yield good return with a sound management team within a feasible time frame. We do much more than merely supplying or sourcing capital as investors or investor’s representative; we wear many hats in supporting our portfolio companies. We stand behind our companies throughout their lifecycle by reserving for multiple future financing.

We are intermediaries (rain makers) connecting people who have new ventures seeking funds with people who have funds seeking ways to leverage their investments. My background is financial services / wealth management, and as a result of doing this over the last 6 years I have amassed a substantial client and referral base. As a result of this network, everyday I get new projects crossing my desk. An example of a project that I lead to successful funding is Steven Cho - an LA based Internet Entrepreneur posted an idea for a Wireless service with distribution throughout the major hotels and airports of Australia. I contacted him through the Australian Investment Network and after a review of the opportunity I secured Ebsworth & Ebsworth (a major Australian Law Firm) on a Pro-Bono basis. I also had the company placed into the PriceWaterhouseCoopers CWEP program (Companies With Extraordinary Potential). I look forward to placing your opportunity. Sincerely

As an entrepreneur myself I have been through the getting funded process, learned the ropes, identified the scams, wasted the money and found the funding at the end. I would like to help other entrepreneurs who I think have a solid business model, develop a winning presentation and get directly in tough with people who can actually fund your business. I am not a broker, but I do make a small commission on the back end from the funding group if and only if you are funded. I can help you prep your idea, explain the process and options and help you save time and money in a very big way. I wish there was someone to help me when I was trying to get funding.
