Angel investors are wealthy individuals with significant experience and networks in a particular industry, giving their own money to a startup project usually in the early stage. Angel investors usually allow you to keep control over your company, but they oftentimes want a large portion of your equity. Angel investors can give you not only seed money but also their contacts and valuable mentorship when it’s needed. They use their network connections to make your startup grow and start earning revenue faster. Although these investors can have a strong personal interest in your project, they have busy lives and other investments. Most early-stage startups don’t limit themselves to working with one angel investor and try to attract several of them to have stronger overall support.
Typical investment size: €25-100k
