Angel investors are usually entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals with significant business expertise, strong networks and an interest in new technologies and business opportunities. They typically invest in start-ups and early-stage businesses that are scalable and have high-growth potential.
Angels may invest as individuals or as a syndicate and the investments can vary from $5K to $500K plus. They typically take equity ownership in the business (20% – 30%) or a convertible debt. They are general looking for a 10x return on their investment within 5 -7 years. Angels invest at the high risk stage so they will carefully select the companies they invest in, and typically have hands-on involvement in guiding its growth.
