Abstract

Business angels invest a large amount of finance in seed, start-up and early stage enterprises.

They are hands-on investors and contribute their skills, expertise, knowledge and contacts in the businesses they invest in. They are wealthy persons with great business experience. They are willing to invest and offer their wealth and knowledge to owners of small and medium sized enterprises and to entrepreneurs to start or develop their businesses.

Keywords: business angels, small and medium sized enterprises, development stages of small businesses, motives of investing, business angel groups, business angel networks
