What Is An Angel Investor?

Angel investors are wealthy individuals who put money into startups early on, and receive part ownership of the business in return, which usually comes in the form of equity. Angel investors also advise and assist the founder in growing the startup so that it can begin to generate revenue quickly and reliably.

Why is it Important to Invest in Early Stage Startups?

Investment is important to the founder of an early-stage startup because it pays for the team, the infrastructure, and the prototypes that are needed for them to grow.

This gives them the ability to influence the direction of the startup and by extension the outcome of their investment.
