    I would like to make an investment into a small business that I believe in, where I can also pitch in with help on the digital marketing side, in exchange for equity in the business. My belief there will be lots of businesses out there who would want the help on both counts, but I don't know where to find them.

    I've had a look at some of the crowd funding sites, but I'm not interested in getting a t-shirt signed by the founders, i want skin in the game. Any recommendations of where to go? Thanks...

    I believe Pretty Boy Barry @BG does some angel investing, as does Frank @domainseller200 maybe worth touching in them, but careful with Barry he gropes back ;)

    If you do need a partner—choose very carefully. This person should be really involved and share your point of view on the core issues. If you need technical cofounder, try these services founderdating.com , cofounderslab.com.

    Or you can post your proposal on Angel.co, a nice startup marketplace, and try to find business partners or co-founders, or any other team members for equity or salarythere.
