First, fill in all of the sections of your startup profile with concise, compelling information. Browse around AngelList to find good profiles and learn from them.
Make sure you add all of your founders, employees, advisors, investors and so on. Your team members' followers get a feed update whenever a team member confirms a role.
Make sure you add the $ amounts for all investors in your current round. $ amounts for specific investors are displayed only to the startup's contact person and that individual investor.
Second, be proactive. Use search filters to find investors tagged with your startup's markets, in your location and that have invested in companies similar to yours. Use AngelList like a social network; follow people and companies, comment on posts and like others' updates.
If you're obviously fund-able (e.g. you previously started a company that made lots of money for its investors), you might want to consider adding less information to your profile. If you're not obviously fund-able, consider the risk of sharing your idea to be a cost of doing business. If you're not willing to take this risk, don't use AngelList.
Also, keep in mind that it is rare for someone to care enough about your idea to “steal” it.
Current Investors are investors that are investing on the same terms as this round, whether right now or have in the past. Previous Investors are the others, i.e. those that invested on different terms to those currently offered.
An investor does not have to have sent money or signed docs to be listed as Current, they just have to be committed to invest in the round and confirm the tagging.
