Angel Investor

Angel Investor Definition

An angel investor invests in private startup companies. They often provide the first source of outside capital for a startup company.

Angel investors also provide cash and managerial expertise to startup companies in their earliest stages of development. They work with businesses even if it is only an idea. In return, the angels receive a stake in the company’s equity. Angels also influence business decisions in the company.

Furthermore, angel investors can be individual investors or groups of investors. In addition, Angels can be wealthy friends or relatives of the business owner, or they may be venture capitalists.

Finding an angel investor can be difficult. As a result, the entrepreneur seeking startup capital from angel investors must work to establish a network of affluent community and industry contacts.

Angel investors will expect you to increase the value of your company. If you want to remove any “destroyers” that may be impacting value negatively, then download the Top 10 Destroyers of Value.
