New York 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 New York 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. 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 Premium 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 a very experienced banker/financier that specializes in merging high growth private companies with public entities and invest or raise additional capital in that process. I invest $1 million or more in the initial process and continue to raise capital or invest as long as management performs according to their business plan. I do not have preference concerning the industry as I seek top quality management and do not get involved in the day to day operations. My role at all times is negotiating new financing and additional acquisitions.

Factoring (more properly known as accounts receivable factoring), is a method of financing terms of payment. Typically those doing business B2B, (business with other businesses and not retail) will invoice for their sales and usually grant customers 30 days or longer to pay. Providing such terms of payment is a useful tool in attracting new customers. Unfortunately it comes at a price. By granting terms of payment, a business is actually providing credit to its customers. If those customers take 30, 45, 60 days or longer to then make payments, it can cause the grantor to have its own problems accessing enough cash to make weekly payroll and pay suppliers on time. The solution to such problems is factoring. Factors are specialized finance companies that purchase the accounts receivable of a company as soon as they are created. Instead of the seller waiting to get paid, the factor now waits. The factor performs this "waiting" service for a fee called the "factoring fee". First: Factors are not lenders like a bank. They buy the accounts receivable of the selling business and take ownership of them. Factoring is always a purchase / sale transaction and never a loan. Second: Factors only purchase invoices. The do not finance real estate, IOUs, notes or any other type of obligation. They do not provide loans to buy a business. Simply put, if the transaction does not involve an invoice, do not call a factor!

I have a varied educational background (BS and MS Computer Science and MBA) so I can help navigate between technology and business. I also have experience working as a software developer and as a product manager for a large online retailer. Admittedly, I am just starting out as an investor, but with my background I bring real insight to the table. My involvement would depend on the pedigree of the entrepreneur and their preference. However, at this stage in my investing career I feel I can best aid an entrepreneur in an advisory capacity. I am married with no children. We live well below our means and have a decent amount of disposable income. We invest in the stock market and would like to invest in real people who have passion, intelligence, and a track record of success. I reside in Washington state but am open to investments anywhere in the continental United States.
