What is a Business Angel?

A business angel invests their own time, money, and resources in early-stage projects to assist the founders in making it a successful business.

A business angel can usually provide much more value than just a cash investment to a startup, but an angel will always invest some cash to have “skin in the game”.

A business angel typically does not hold a formal role in the company, though some will join the board or even serve as a de-facto co-founder if skills and needs align.

You are a business angel even if you invest just a five-digit sum of any currency in a startup, as the advice and connections you also provide can be the most valuable contribution to the business.
