About Angel Investing An angel investor is an individual who makes direct investments of personal funds into a venture, typically early-stage businesses. This is in contrast to venture capitalists who typically raise and invest third party funds. An angel group is a formal or informal assembly of active angel investors who cooperate in some part of the investment process.
