Business Angels

Business angels: wealthy individuals who invest in your company

Business angels, also known as angel investors, are an important source of capital in the early phase. Business angels are often wealthy individuals who put their own money into a new company. Ideally, the angel investor is an entrepreneur himself or has been in the past, so that he can make his experience and network available to the startup in addition to capital. With a thorough proposal and a convincing pitch where the market potential is clear, you have a good chance of obtaining venture capital from an early-stage angel investor.
