Angel Investor Definition

The angel investor definition is someone who invests in private startup companies. They often provide the first source of outside capital for a startup company.

Role of an Angel Investor

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.
