Ray Magee @ Bloomcatch


I recently decided to raise funds for my startup, Bloomcatch. We're a small startup based out of Washington D.C. and we help people connect with nature through our plant ID app. I tried many, many different ways before stumbled across Angel Investment Network. I tried asking friends and family for direct connections to investors. I tried reaching out to others with direct connections to angel investors. I learned that this process was hard. After not hearing from many of my solicitations, I decided to use a couple of different platforms. I was fortunate to have my entire package ready: financials, pitch deck, video so for me it was simply a matter of uploading the information. Angel Investment Network made that process really easy. After I completed the upload which only took about an hour my pitch was live. And then I waited...and waited...and waited. After nothing happening for about a week I decided to start nudging people. AIN lets you nudge people whose interest and geographic preference aligns with your own. So I nudged...and nudged...and nudged. Nothing happened. I emailed Mike who encouraged me to keep trying and be persistent and make refinements to my package to improve it. So, I did all that and then...something happened. Investors started becoming interested in my pitch. I was talking to real people who were interested in my little startup. So I talked and learned and continued to promote my company. I did this over and over and over until I completed my first deal. It was amazing and exhilarating and nerve-wracking and stressful. But I'm done now and I can go back to work on building my company. I wrote this to illustrate that I am grateful to Angel Investment Network for giving my company the platform to connect to real people who believe in what I'm trying to do in this world and to also encourage entrepreneurs on this journey to try their best, be patient, and then work hard to make something happen. Extremely grateful, Ray Magee, President @ Bloomcatch
