How Angel Investors Engage Impact Investing

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Angel investors fill the gap between family-and-friends funding and institutional funding.

They engage with impact startups in several ways:

They fund startups with early-stage capital to launch the business. 

They provide mentorship to the startup founders to help the company.

Some angels work as advisors providing services such as accounting or financial work.

Some angels form groups to invest in impact startups.

Each group focuses on an impact sector or geographic area.

Some groups provide funding through individual investments while others form funds.

Angel groups help share the deal flow and the due diligence.

Before investing, an angel investor will look at the team to check their experience.

They will perform diligence on the company for the business model, the competition, sales and marketing, and intellectual property.

Finally, they will look at the impact the startup makes. 

It’s important to measure the impact your startup will have as investors will decide to invest based on it. 

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
