If you're building an app and you have high ambitions, you probably want to see it become a monster hit like Snapchat or Angry Birds. However, building a hit doesn't come cheap. If you can't fork out the cash yourself and you're sure that your app will be a hit you should explore investment options. This can be a real hassle given the fierce competition there is today. You read stories in the media about Snapchat receiving $200 million in funding for a valuation of $15 billion and even the app that only says "Yo" got $1 million a couple of days after it was launched. It makes you wonder: "Isn't there anyone that wants to invest maybe just a couple of thousand in my app?". The short answer is, there is. However, you will need to look in the right places and convince the right people.
