The definition of 'Business angel'

Business angels (also known as angels or angel investors) are individuals who use their personal wealth to provide capital to start-up and early-stage businesses in return for a share of the company’s equity.

They tend to be entrepreneurial by nature and are prepared to take a high personal risk in the expectation that will in due course be able to secure a profitable exit and see a return on their investment.

As well as capital, business angels may also bring valuable business and professional experience and may become involved in the company by taking a seat on the board.
