There are many funding resource at startupguiding.com
I was told by my business partner to check out ReachFunding.com. Has anyone used them before? They publish a directory of investors.
That is a lot of money for a startup that does not know how to get that money. Why do you need so much? How much are you contributing? Do you have business experience and experience in the industry you want to start a business in?
Suggestion: Find a local SCORES office in your area or online and let them help you find legitimate ways to raise capital - plus, they are free to use.
Lastly, whatever you do - don't pay anyone to help you raise capital unless they guarantee in writing they will either raise the $150K or give you your money back.

If you want to invest more, spread it over several companies this will insure you a lower risk of loss and true diversification. Important to keep in mind that anyone or any site asking for money NOW or showing companies NOW without explicated SEC approval is doing so illegally, current SEC general solicitation rules are still in effect in their current form (LAWS) for both Reg-D and for crowdfunding exemptions offerings.
So please report any site or person promoting or selling interest in any company under the new Jobs Act premise to the SEC at https://denebleo.sec.gov/TCRExternal/questionaire.xhtml

I have no direct experience with reachFunding but will offer the following comments:
1.Using a purchased list could be violate certain SEC restrictions on "general solicitation".
2. From my experience, all investment capital for an early stage business comes from the owner/founders extended network - so I wouldn't expect too much when "cold contacting" people.
