What is an Angel Investor?
Definition of: Angel Investor
Angel Investor. An angel investor is an individual or group that provides capital for a business start-up, usually in exchange for ownership equity. Angel investments bear extremely high risk, and thus require a very high return on investment for the investor.
The term "angel" originally comes from England where it was used to describe wealthy individuals who provided money for theatrical productions.
