If you’ve recently joined AngelList, you might have noticed a wizard that walks you through the process.
We’ve also launched a new way to get your investor profile approved automatically. If you fit our normal investment criteria — accreditation, key investments, and a reasonably complete profile — and you get 3 approved investors on the site to vouch for you, you’ll be approved automatically. These references can be through either email or Twitter. If 3 approved investors follow you on Twitter — and you meet the aforementioned criteria — you’ll be approved instantly.
Pro Tip: If you’re still waiting for approval, you can go to http://angel.co/references and request for references; we recommend at least 7 just to be sure you get responses. While you’re at it, be sure to spruce up your profile too!
