What is angel investing?

An angel investor is a private investor who provides capital for early stage companies at their seed or subsequent funding rounds. An angel investor acts alone or as part of a group, buying equity of the company (stock or convertible debt), after conducting due diligence, with an expected holding period of less than ten years. Typical investment minimums are $25,000 for individuals and $200,000 for groups.
