Looking for a list of angel investors?

I have been starting the preliminary backside coding to a new web project that I am starting. I have seed money that I am using for initial costs, but I know there will be a gap in time from that money running out to me being ready to have customers and advertisers to start a good revenue stream.

My question is this, do you know of any reputable angel investment websites or resources that I could use to help with this gap in funding? I have looked at business incubators and such but have not found any close to my area (near Green Bay, WI, USA)

Thanks in advance.

Have a look at AngelList. It's a directory of business angels worldwide, and you can submit your startup to all (or only some) of them directly from the website.

+1 @Filippo Diotalevi: I've heard of the site too. Have you heard used it, or more important raised capital as a result of it? Cheers! –  blunders Jun 3 '11 at 16:30
I have seen this site, was hoping this or other sites people had experiences with. –  RiddlerDev Jun 3 '11 at 16:40

Best resources is to make a little money, and then get friends/family/etc. to lend money at a good rate with the option to covert the loan to equity at a later date at the value of the company on the date the loan is converted to equity.

Here's an better explanation of the concept: Plain English translation of these finance terms

Thanks, did up-vote, but by resources I meant business organizations and such. Friends/Family I have used already in this way. –  RiddlerDev Jun 3 '11 at 16:39
@IPX Ares: Great, thank you - and I agree, this answer does not directly address your question; but since you didn't mention other efforts to raise capital, I thought it best to bring up. Cheers! –  blunders Jun 3 '11 at 18:19
