Business Angels

Are you an individual who wants to invest your money, experience and expertise in a young, promising, fast growing venture?

 

Business Angels are typically venture capitalists or wealthy individuals who invest in ideas and startup companies.

 

Business angels can help you get started.  At this stage of the venture, usually there's a lone entrepreneur who just has an idea, possibly scribbled in few pages in the garage. There's no management team, no market analysis, no formal business plan; just a rough sketch of an idea.

 

At this level, typically there's no formal private placement memorandum or subscription agreement that is signed. The entrepreneur usually begins to start the development of a service or product prototype, but no marketing or product testing is done at this stage. Additionally, the entrepreneur will also start drafting a formal business plan and conduct market surveys, and may even assemble some key management team members. The typical investment amount is very small, between $50,000 and $500,000.
