What is an angel investor?


Angel Investor

Angel investors are individuals that invest their own money in a small business or start-up with the hope of accelerating or kick-starting growth and receiving a return. The term “angel investor” has risen in popularity over the last decade due to TV shows like Shark Tank. Angel investors generally have a network of over $1 million and typically invest up to $100,000 in a new business.
