Yesterday, our new Invest Online feature hit $1M in commitments in the first month. Plus another $12M in offline investments via AngelList in the same time period (investor meets startup on AngelList and invests offline).
3 companies have already finished raising money online. And 7 companies are currently accepting online investments; co-investors in those rounds include David Sacks (founder of Yammer), Garry Tan (partner at Y Combinator), Danny Rimer (partner at Index Ventures) and many other great investors.
Today, we’re also announcing that investors can express interest in investing online in any startup on AngelList through the Invest button or after Following a company.
Once a company lands a top-tier investor, they have the option to accept online investments and interested investors are notified.
