These individuals are often wealthy entrepreneurs and business executives in search of business opportunities and investments, not unlike venture capital firms. Angel investors, however, usually focus on providing the first round of funding for businesses that need less than $1 million in capital. A typical angel investment is between $25,000 and $50,000. Angel investors want equity in exchange for capitaland are, therefore, usually willing to take risks in exchange for a potentially better-than-average return.
You can find angel investors through networking, investment clubs, and online.
