Angel investors usually have a high net-worth who have the wherewithal to assess the potential of a new enterprise or a startup and invests money when it is still unsuitable for debt-funding, early on in its life-cycle, in exchange for assets like convertible bonds or ownership equity

They effectively provide seed funding.

Unlike venture capitalists, who seek out high growth rate in a company before investing in it, an angel investor may have motives other than earning returns on investment such as keeping abreast of the developments in the sector the company belongs to, understanding new sectors and mentoring new entrepreneurs.
