    Is Angel Funding Right for Your Company?

    Angel investment is the “right” source of funding for only a small proportion of entrepreneurial businesses. When considering yourself for investment by an individual angel or angel group, ask yourself these key questions:

    • Am I willing to give up some amount of ownership and control of my company?
    • Can I demonstrate that my company is likely to realize significant revenues and earnings in the next 3-7 years?
    • Can I demonstrate that my company will produce a significant return for investors?
    • Am I willing take the advice from investors and accept board of director decisions I may not always agree with?
    • Do I have an exit plan for the company that may mean I’m not involved in 3 – 7 years?
