Texas Investment Network

Entrepreneurs - How It Works

We have created a database of Texas investors who are regular investors in Texas startups and businesses requiring capital. Our site also gives you access to investors from our partner sites in New York, California, Florida, and Canada. We charge no commission and our rates are low, so the cost to you of finding investment can be as little as $149.

We offer a fast and easy process to get your business proposal in front of investors:

Step 1: Register as an Entrepreneur

The first step in reaching investors through the Texas Investment Network is to register. This involves answering a few questions about yourself in our one page registration form. It is free to register and the process only takes a few minutes. Click here to register.

Step 2: Create A Proposal

Once you have registered, you can then login and create an investment proposal. We don't ask you for a detailed business plan, only that you answer questions that investors need to know in order to do initial due diligence on your idea and your business. When you are ready to activate your proposal, a staff member will do a final review prior to releasing the proposal to investors.

Step 3: Find Matching Investors

Once your proposal is approved, our system will cross reference your proposal information with investor preferences to determine which investors should be notified about your proposal.

Step 4: Make Contact

Once your proposal is distributed to investors, you will be notified if an investor is interested in your proposal. Please be aware that we are a match-making service only. We receive no commissions so our rates for helping you find investors can remain low. Our system gives you access to contact information of interested investors, however, we do not become involved in due diligence, negotiations, or deal structuring between you and any interested investors.

Payment Options

Option 1 Submit your investment proposal for free using our Basic Services package. When our online matching service finds an investor interested in your opportunity, you can connect with the investor by upgrading to our Referral Services or Premium Services packages. Your proposal remains active for 180 days and all investor contacts are included in the price of the upgrade packages, no matter how many of them there are. Please Note: If you submit your investment proposal using our free Basic Services package, it must be 100% anonymous.

Option 2 Alternatively you can pay upfront for our Referral Services or Premium Services package and take advantage of our enhanced services before your proposal is released to investors. You can include contact details, website links, your logo, YouTube videos, images, and documents. This will increase your chances of finding investment by helping your proposal stand out more and allowing you easier and faster access to interested investors. Check out our our rates pages for the list of features associated with our Referral and Premium Service packages.

Texas Investors

I am a 39 year old solo attorney, married with children in Cypress, Texas (Houston suburb). I am heavily invested in a diverse traditional portfolio. I am looking to add some investments in local start-ups and / or established businesses. I am an individual investor and am primarily interested in being a silent investor with either debt or equity interests depending on the project. My goal is to invest in ideas that tickle my fancy and that I believe will be successful in the Houston - Gulf Coast - Austin - Central Texas areas.
