The amount of capital needed to start the average business these days isn’t as massive as what entrepreneurs were seeking several years ago. According to a recent study, 40% of new businesses in the UK last year needed less than £10,000 in start-up funding and about two-thirds of new ventures required under £100,000.
Angel investors, private investors who offer small amounts of money with lower return rates than venture capitalists, banks or shareholders, are fast-becoming the preferred financing partners for many small business owners.
Entrepreneurs can develop a partnership with these business angels based on each other’s needs - some angels take a more managerial role, while others can sit back coolly and ride the investment to term.
