Hello niner_n9-ga:

Area or either they are located in the desired area. Although, all of

answered a similar question recently.

At least half of the Angel Investor groups listed are not located in
the San Diego/Los Angeles area.  Angel Investors prefer to invest
close to home, so, if they're not located in the San Diego/Los Angeles
area, their information is not what I need.

Also, 50% of the angels listed indicate that they "invest in
technology and/or communications companies", as stated in my question,
I have no need for these type of investors.  I need a specific list of
investors in San Diego or Los Angeles, who are not dedicated to
investing in something my company does not offer.

It doesn't specifically need to be "Angel Investors", anyone with a
history of shelling out investment funds, who meets the initially
requested criteria will do.

If the information is not available, as requested, my question will
just need to go unanswered.

Hello niner_n9-ga:

Thanks very much for the clarification. Yes, you are right that Angel
Investors like to invest close to their location. I was specifically
looking for angel investors that were just a little more difficult to
find. Well! I came across many other funding resources that would be
very interesting to you. What I will do here is post another list for
your review and see if that is more precise. Don't worry, if i cannot
satisfy you, we will talk about other alternatives so that you do not
loose your money and get a satisfactory answer. Thanks again. I will
try to improve.

Hello niner_n9-ga:

Thank you for your patience. I have spent considerable time in
locating the Angel Investors and other capital funding sources that
can help you with your business. It seems that there are few investors
in Bay Area who invest in Sporting good category. Fortunately, I have
also located some very useful subscription based directories where you
may search according to your criteria. I did an initial search and
found that they have plenty of companies that should fit your needs.

I will especially want you to check out They have an excellent list of
angel investors who are willing to invest in Sporting Goods Industry.
Most of them do not have any Geographic Preference. The directory is
very inexpensive, too.

I am not sure why I couldn?t locate an investment fund that really
caters to your industry and why do these directories have such
information. To be quite frank, I think it is difficult to locate
angel investors who are willing to invest in Sporting Goods by doing
an online research. Therefore, I will advise you to get help from
these directories because they are your best bet.

I am also providing a few venture capital firms that I have located in
San Diego and Los Angeles. They might fit your needs.

Again, if you think that these directories provided you what you
required, it is great. Otherwise, please repost your question for
other researchers or ask for a refund. Here is the link.
