    • What is an Angel Investor?
      Originally, the term "angel" was coined to refer to the people who financed Broadway plays when all else failed. Today this term has become common among the investment community to refer to individuals that invest their own personal funds in various businesses. In the UK, it is estimated that there are well over 200,000 potential angel investors that annually invest approximately 3 billion in UK businesses and currently own over 12 billion in existing equity. This represents roughly 7% of what the banks are investing. As well, statistics show that this figure trumps that of venture capital lending.
      The UK labour market and productivity centre estimates that angel investments have financed approximately twice as many firms as any other form of external equity investment, including institutional venture capital.
      Historically, angel investors have been high net-worth individuals capable of investing large sums in a venture. Good2use.com's unique nature allows investors to come together and pool smaller resources to provide angel funds.

      Angels are also extremely discerning in the projects that they will invest in (rejecting, on average, approximately 97% of the proposals submitted to them). Angel investors typically invest in a business after the entrepreneur's "love capital" (capital from relatives and friends) has been exhausted, but before the firm has reached a stage at which it will be eligible for venture capital investment. Angel investments typically range from about £ 15,000 to £ 300,000, although investments may range upwards of £ 500,000.
      Research also indicates that, historically, most angel investors seek to invest close to home-within a 100 mile radius of where they live.

    • What is the difference between an Angel Investor and a Venture Capital firm?
      Generally, angel investors do not invest in deals over £ 1 million, whereas venture capital firms typically do not look at deals under this amount. Angels make their own decisions as opposed to a board or group of people making a decision for investors that have pooled money together. Angels tend to be more involved in the businesses that they invest in and provide assistance in ways that venture capital firms do not. Angels typically do not own as large a stake in the company as a venture capital firm would.
