About Angel Investing

Angel investing is an active and essential part of the American economy. In 2018, angel investors funded over 66,000 companies and invested over $23 billion in these businesses. *

Many people become angel investors to have a first row seat in innovation in many industries. It is endlessly interesting to learn about trends and to meet the inspiring entrepreneurs who are leading the way. Plus, it is a great way for angel investors to use their skills, capital and networks to support these companies.

Angels are high net worth individuals who are passionate about supporting start-up businesses and participating in this investment sector. Angels invest in start-up companies in exchange for an equity share of the businesses. These investors are seeking a return on their capital and an opportunity to have impact on the companies and entrepreneurs they select. Equally important, angel investors often add substantial value to the companies by sharing their advice, skills and networks. Without access to funding from angels, many of these companies would be unable to prosper and grow.

Much angel investing is done through organized angel groups whose members work together to identify investment opportunities, conduct due diligence, monitor the companies’ progress and provide support in many other ways. Golden Seeds is one of the largest and most active angel groups in the country.
