Angel Investors are the start up company’s best friend.  Some say they are called “angels” because they are an answer to the entrepreneur’s prayer for money to get their business launched.  

Angels are the financial fuel of the economy.  Before Venture Capitalists get involved, before banks will loan a company an unsecured note; Angel Investors provide the capital that fuels the entrepreneurial spirit and helps inventions become products and ideas become reality. 

 Angels are wealthy individuals who provide seed capital and growth capital to companies in start up and early stage of their company’s lifecycle.  Their capital can be offered in exchange for equity in the company or as some specialized form of debt facility.  Investing in this stage of company is the most risky, but it can also be the most rewarding.  Rewards come not just from the financial returns, but also from experiencing the purest form of capitalism…bringing value to the market by supplying a product or service to satisfy a market demand.   There is a definite sense of pride and accomplishment from being able to say you were an early investor in a block buster like MicroSoft or Starbucks,  and surprisingly, there is little regret from the early stage investors in the near misses like WebVAN and PETS.com because they got their sizeable returns.   That is how it works for the wise angel investor.

Investing or buying Private Equity of early stage companies is one of the secrets the wealthy use to create more wealth.  As Robert Kiyosaki says in his book,  Rich Dad’s Retire Young, Retire Rich on page 127, “the rich invest in shares of a company when the company is still a private company”  This course (www.howtobeanangelinvestor.com) will teach you how to identify and screen opportunities for early stage private equity investing so that you have potential to reap the rewards of those early investors who took the risk and invested in MicroSoft or Home Depot.
