Now that I have started to make some money through IM I keep looking to expand in different areas not putting all my eggs in one basket as they say. So now I'm interested in trying to invest but not in the typical big business stock which does not favor the smaller investor, I'm looking to invest in startup type people. Maybe these startups aren't even companies yet just products like some person developing like software/website/service he/she is going to sell, actually this is what I would prefer to get involved in. Like for example something where say this developer need some funding to develop/advertise some software he is building where say he is asking for $1,000 in return for 10% equity in the product or whatever. So here is where my question comes into play, where at can I find people/startups like this who are looking for investors for a product of theirs? Is there any big forums or sites for this out there anybody knows of that are related to this? I know in BHW's JV section you see things like this pop up every now then but it doesn't seem like there are many.
