An angel investor is a person who provides capital to start-ups in the initial stages in return for convertible debt or ownership equity. They provide financial support to start-ups when most of the other investors back off due to high risk as these business ideas can even fail. The investment by angel investors in the early stages of the start-up helps the young entrepreneurs to start their business by producing their products and services and introducing them to the market.
