If you are an entrepreneur looking for a little funding to get your startup going there are a number of incubator programs that I have covered previously like Y Combinator, TechStars and LaunchBox Digital that could help get you started. But if you have already participated in an incubator or you are looking for a little more than what an incubator can offer you might want to look for an angel investor. If you do not know an angel investor you might be out of luck but there is a new company looking to help connect angel investors with startups and visa versa. Angelsoft, a New York-based company, looks to aggregate angel investors into one site that can then browsed by entreprenuers in need. With Angelsoft entrepreneurs are able to browse over 400 angel investment groups and early-stage venture capital funds and apply for financing using a single common application.
Angelsoft recently launched a new version of the site and released the video (below) which explains the entrire concept and their mission.

I think Angelsoft is a great idea, especially if AngelSoft can truly aggregate all the angel investors into one place. I deifnitely curious to hear what traditional venture captialists think of the new Angelsoft launch.
