An Angel Investor is an investor who provides financial back up for small startups or entrepreneurs by investing their own funds usually in exchange for convertible debt or ownership equity. They are usually found among entrepreneur’s family and friends. It is usually a one-time lending to provide support in difficult times.
Angel investors can be individuals or trusts, companies, investment funds and so on. These investors bear extremely high risk as the majority of start-ups fail within the first five years of their operations. Due to investor's need for high rates of return on any given investment can make angel financing an expensive source of funds.
Angel investors are often veteran entrepreneurs or executives who along with fund assistance also mentor another generation of entrepreneurs by providing valuable management advice and industry connections. The goal is to create great companies by providing value creation, while simultaneously helping investors to realize a high return on investment.
