Wealthy individuals have always been benefactors of fledgling businesses, particularly when a company is involved in an area in which the individual has substantial prior experience.  In addition, so-called “angel” investors, who are high net worth individuals, often businesspeople or professionals with high incomes or individuals from wealthy families, may have an interest in participating in high-risk/high-return investment opportunities.  This report provides an introduction to some of the key characteristics of angel investor preferences and contributions to a firm and describes several financing structures might be appropriate for the company and the members of an angel investor group.
