Angel Investors are people who provide capital for a business start-up, often in exchange for convertible debt or ownership equity. An angel investor usually supports start-ups initially and when most investors are not prepared to back them at the start. Types of investors are the super angel, the domain angel, the previous-colleague angel, the grouped angels, the “true believer angel” and the financial angel.
The benefits of being an investor are growing your own money, give back to the community, and you get flexibility in your investment strategy. Tips on being an investor are getting help, focus on the people, do your research, focus on your exit strategy, diversify, treat it as an investment, and be mindful of regulatory quirks.
To conclude, talk to an investor and determine if this investment style would add value to your business or company.
