Angel Investors 

Angel Investors are experienced business individuals who choose to invest in starting out companies in return for share ownership. As they have experience in business they can also be mentors and offer expertise in different areas of your startup.

These types of investors can usually invest on their own or as a group of angel investors.

The process of obtaining an angel investor:

  • You need to find an investor and build interest by presenting your idea and creating an agreement on the investment
  • Time from first meeting an investor to gaining investment can take between 2 -4months
  • You will need to have all your accounts and documentation prepared and ready to present (Legal documents, product/service specification and documentation)
  • Investors will also be interested on the how the company is managed and the skillset and passion of those starting the company

Here are the pros and cons of Angel Investing

VC’s

Venture Capitalists are companies who invest a much larger amount of money than Angel Investors, which is not always their own, but from a professionally managed fund belonging to individuals outside of the firm. 

How Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists differ: 

  • Ask for higher % of ownership due to risk involved of managing other people’s money
  • Have a lengthy due diligence process, they want to ensure they’ve measured all risks carefully before investing in you
  • VC’s tend to come in later (after Angels, who come in at pre-startup phase) on when the start-up is already a formed company and need to raise more money in order to grow.
