Nothing is Angelic about Angel Investors
“Angel Investor” is the most inappropriate term used in corporate finance. The term was conceived when entrepreneurs saw individual investors as a “white knight” because individuals typically invest in companies at better terms than professional investors (such as Venture Capitalists “VCs”, which is a small subgroup of the private equity industry). Some professional investors have another term they use for these early-stage private investors: fools.
