Sharing a list of angel investors


I've been aggregating a list of angel investors in the Boston area and I'm up to 180 or so now from around the area. The list includes links to Twitter pages, LinkedIn pages, and their investing groups (if they are part of one). Is that something that could be shared, or would it it annoy anyone? The lists are all public info, just that I've worked and aggregated. I don't mind sharing it but I dont want to piss the people I need $$ from off !

EDIT: I'm still building the list but here is a twitter list you can follow for now. --!/totaltab/boston-investors

  • How public is this "public info"? If it is freely available on the web, I don't see how anyone could justifiably be annoyed that you share it. – Kenneth Vogt 13 years ago
  • Literally all publically available info. Just aggregated for very easy access. – Nick 13 years ago
  • Well, I'm still working on my list but here is the Twitter list you guys can follow to get you started :)!/totaltab/boston-investorsNick 13 years ago

By all means share this information. In fact, why not create a publicly shared google doc that others can add to?

  • That's exactly what I was planning on doing. I didn't think it would be a problem but I just wanted a sanity check before pulling a really dumb PR move or something, haha – Nick 13 years ago


If it's all public information, I don't see the harm?

Entrepreneurs are still going to need to hustle to get introductions to the people on your list. The only thing I would be hesitant about is sharing emails (which I assume you don't have and aren't public).

I'm currently doing a round and had to make my own list (through info on AngelList) and it was a pain. Something like what you're proposing would have really helped!

  • Yeah, no e-mails, just a spreadsheet with a list, what fund(s) they work with, their linkedin page, their twitter accounts, their typical funding amount and typical industries, and typical funding stage – Nick 13 years ago
  • Cool - Let me know if you want to take a look at mine once I'm through the round. – Andy Cook 13 years ago


Why don't you ask the people you have if it is ok. Or tell them you will publish it and they have to contact you if they decline. I think that is a lot more professional than just aggregating all those names, etc.
