If your idea needs funding, the best place to start is an Angel investor.
They’re generally individuals who have the ability to provide startups with significant amounts of capital, usually in exchange for some equity in the company.
Unlike venture capitalists, angels don’t often require management or board seats on their investments which means that they can be more hands off and let founders have full control over their companies without any interference from those pesky VCs!
Angel investment is also often called seed investment. It’s designed to grow your idea to either build version 1 of your idea so you can gain revenue, or more typically to get a 1st round of funding. The Angel can then either take their money out plus a profit or stay with your startup.
