7+ Differences: Angel Investor VS Venture Capitalist
Would you like to know the difference between an Angel Investor and a Venture Capitalist. Here are the 7 main differences.
- Amount of the Investment. As individuals the amount of the investment by Angels are very limited compared with the VCs. In most of the cases VCs have a bigger capitals compared to an Angel Investor.
- Return on investment. VCs invest bigger amounts but they also request bigger returns compared to individual investors.
- Structure. An Angel Investor is an individual and the Venture Capitalists are companies. The structure is completely different.
- Due Diligence. In most cases, the individual investors don’t take part in the Due Diligence. This statistic is different in the case of the VCs. They participate more in this matter.
- Motivation of Investment. A VC is a company, thus they have to do a bigger research compared with individual investors.
- Specialization. Most of the Angel Investors are focused on early-stage startups. In the case of VCs, the specialization is more distributed. It means, in both cases they invest in early-stage and late-stage startups. However, the first group is more focused on new startups.
- How to pitch them? To a VC, you pitch a company and, in the second case, to an individual. In both cases, you need to make the best impressions, and to achieve this, you have to do research. So, the main differences are the interest of the individuals and how to pitch them.
