About NEXEA Angel Investors

Early Stage Startup Investment Funding For Technology Startups in Southeast Asia

The NEXEA Investors/Mentors seek investment oppurtunities in technology startups which can showcase revenue and potential future growth.

NEXEA Angel Investors are all experienced business owners and/or C-level professionals who are able to provide more than just funding for your startup. We also provide mentorship & support through industry experts & mentors.

Angel Investors are valuable for startups because they are not as focused on monetary gains as traditional sources of funding. Instead, most Angel investors have already achieved success in their careers and are now looking for ways to give back and support ideas and entrepreneurs.

What is an Angel Investor?

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.

Furthermore, angel investors can support startups by sharing contacts and networks to secure additional capital.

Unlike loans and different forms of credit financing, angel investor funding is usually a much cheaper and accessible option when looking for seed-stage capital.

How much do Angel Investors invest?

While the exact amount is highly dependant on the startup and Angel Investors involved, the investment amount could range anywhere from RM50,000 to RM1,000,000. The average sits around the RM500,000 mark.

What percentage of equity do NEXEA Angel Investors take in return for funding?

Angel Investors typically take between 10-25% equity in a startup, in return for funding.

In the case of NEXEA Angel investors, the percentage of equity tennds to fall towards the lower end of the 10-25% range as it gives founders the right incentive and alignment with Angel Investors to grow the business in the right direction.
