What is an Angel Investor?
Angel Investors are wealthy individuals who provide capital for startups. The funding can turn an idea into an actual company and form the foundation for the company to start offering its products/services.
Angel Investors provide more value than just funding a startup. These wealthy individuals also share & invest their knowledge and expertise to support a startup’s growth.
The mentorship and guidance Angel Investors can provide is what sets them apart from more traditional funding methods. Angel Investors build a close relationship with the startups they invest in. They monitor the startup throughout their growth process and provide advice and insights when necessary.
Another major advantage Angel Investors can provide for startups, is the access to the individual’s network. As Angel Investors are usually individuals who held/are holding executive positions at corporations or successful entrepreneurs, they have a wide network of experts who they can introduce to a startup.
