Business Angels are people who have entrepreneurial skills and wealthy and want to invest in new and growing businesses. They also invest the knowledge they have from running businesses in the past into the new one. They invest in all the stages of business development, predominantly in the start up and early stages of business. They invest in small businesses so that they have a share in the success of the organisations. They make their investment decisions quickly and don't have a complex process in place to work. The investments from them are not regular and it is difficult to find them. They place a lot of emphasis on relationship and working together directly. Tracking down the right investor may take longer than expected. 2. Venture capital is also known as private equity finance. Unlike business angels, venture capitalists (VCs) look to invest large sums of money in return for some of your business' shares. The biggest advantage of getting a venture capital into a business is that they not only get huge amount of money but also bring wealth of expertise along with them. If you find on venture capitalist successfully, you can use them for future funding as well. Venture capitalist take longer times to decide and the process is complex. For securing a deal with them you need to have a detailed business plan with financial projections (For which you may need professional assistance). ?? ?? ?? ??
