Angel Investors For Startups

Early Stage Startup Investment Funding For Technology Startups in Southeast Asia

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

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.

FAQ's on Angel Investor's for Startups

Here are some FAQ's on Angel Investors for Startups

A good angel investor who is also an industry expert within the industry of the company operation would provide a good industry-specific insight for the startup to avoid potential pitfalls in the future.

NEXEA Angel has industry experts from a wide variety of industries to support the Startup founder for their entrepreneurship journey. NEXEA's Angel Investors are all mentors and experienced business owners, that are not only interested to provide capital to your startup but further your experience with us by providing mentorship and guidance alongside as well.

Apart from mentorship, NEXEA funded startups are offered a range of technology and digital benefits from our partners as well. Our digital support partners include AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft services for startups as well as support from platforms like Cradle and MDEC.

Angel Investors are often High Net Worth Individuals or Friends and Family of the entrepreneurs that they believe to have a valid business model for the futures. NEXEA Angels is an alternative where we pool industry experts to invest in startups that we believe have strong execution ability and scalability.

For investors, we recommend that Angel Investment does not take up more than 5-20% of the company to ensure the safety of your capital. However, it is entirely dependent on the deal itself.

Angel Investors often invest in companies they believe to have a long term growth and often are raised from Friends and Family. Average ballpark of Angel Investors ranges from USD 50,000 - USD 100,000 in exchange for 10%-20% of equity. NEXEA invests anywhere from USD 12,500 to USD 250,000.
