Dan - we'll try to find relevant articles regarding getting funding from an angel investor on-board. I'll send them to you and if you found them useful you can include them in the wiki. Btw - thanks for the great contri regarding HTML Emails, so important for business communications!

All - if you have any articles that are relevant to Dan's request and you found useful do not hesitate to put it up on this wiki and share it with others.

Thanks
