Angel Investors: Who They Are & When Are They Appropriate

Angel investors are individuals who invest in emerging business ventures. Angels typically provide both capital and know-how to companies who are in either their start-up or expansion phases. To reflect the increased risk of investing in such firms, angels seek a higher rate of return versus traditional public stock investments.

Angel investors fulfill the financing need that exists between capital provided by friends and family and capital provided by venture capitalists. Individual angel investors often write checks from $25,000 to $100,000. Recently, angel investing has become more organized, and angel groups often invest from $250,000 to $500,000 at a time to deserving ventures.

Angel investors often have similar financing criteria as venture capitalists. They want to see proprietary intellectual property, a large market size, management team members with expertise and experience, and a current valuation that allows for a good return on investment.

In identifying and attracting an angel investor, companies should seek angel groups that are located in their region. For instance, the Tech Coast Angels have funded over 85 Southern California-based companies since 1997. When seeking individual angel investors, it is critical to network in order to create a personal connection between yourself and the angel. Also, ideally the individual has experience within your specific field so he/she can provide industry contacts and operational expertise in addition to capital.

Testimonials



I wanted to take a moment to thank-you and your team for the incredible job on the Redux business plan. It was an absolute breeze to work with you and would look forward to working with you again in the future.

When you're underwater, and resource-constrained, like most startups, Growthink can be a valuable partner to help you progress in areas like organizing and developing the business plan and pursuing funding. Their service can be a well-managed extension of your own human resources. The people at Growthink care about their work and are very "hands-on", which is required in this process. We found Growthink to be strong not only with the assigned projects, but also the extra things needed to get a company off the ground, and not always specifically laid out in the assignment - networking for advisors, funding sources, potential partners. We used them for more than one of our startups.
