I am looking for a complete list of angel investors within the US. I want to see who is in my general area and possible set up some meetings. I don’t want to travel right now too far given what is going on and all of the restrictions.
^ That is the most compiled list that is up to date that I could find.
If you are curious about your own particular state, try finding a Facebook page for it. Some angel investors do remain anonymous.
demarco: There are over 5,000 on this list alone: https://angel.co/united-states/investorsI am not sure what area you are in but they are shown according to what state they live in.
@demarco I found a similar list but it was missing a lot of the current big names on there so I would say that this is the most complete list online as of now.
The angel website posted above seems to be the biggest one and the most knowledgeable. I am sure that not all of them are on there though so it is worth checking around elsewhere online too.
Has anyone here acquired funding from an angel investor before?
I have an idea that I think has real potential but I just don't have the means to get it going. Share your experiences please!

@kimberly I wish I have but sadly, no. I do know someone local to my area who got in touch with one at a bar and he ended up investing in his idea. This was maybe 9 years ago and now the man owns several buildings that operate his server and computer support company.
Angel Investors are great if you happen to be able to meet one or get in touch with one. Very few of them are looking to work on several investments at once too so there is a good chance you might end up on someone's back-burner.
The best list I was able to find was posted already. No point in sharing it again. I think that one is up to date too. A few other ones I came across seem to be outdated as a lot of statistics on some folks are from 2014.
