What is angel investing?

Angel investing is early stage investing in private companies. It generally is the capital financing after friends and family and before venture capital. Because of the early stage of investing, angel investing is very risky and illiquid.

 

Who are angel investors?

Angel investors are wealthy individuals who invest in high risk, early stage ventures by reserving a portion of their total investment portfolio to provide emerging companies with seed and startup capital through direct, private investments. Their goal is to achieve higher returns than the typical public markets provide. Most angels are active investors – who contribute their time and experience, as well as offer introductions to valuable contacts essential to the company’s success – because they enjoy the thrill of helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses.  An accredited investor has a net worth of more than 1 million dollars excluding their primary residence and or income over $250k for more than two years.

 

In what dollar increments are angel investments made?

Angel investing is an extremely risky asset class and should not be made if the investor is unable to absorb a complete loss of his/her investment. Each individual makes his/her own investment decision on where and how much to invest. In general, angel investments are made in increments of $25,000.

 

How do I reduce the risk of angel investing?

Angel investing by nature is a risky proposition. Like other investment classes, it has been shown that risk can be reduced by diversifying across a broad portfolio of angel investments.
