Angel Funding in Singapore


Angels are people who are ready to invest in others business, but don’t wish to manage it.Angels usually invest their own funds. Angel investments are subject to high risk and therefore expect a very high return on investment. Since a large percentage of angel investments are lost completely if startups fail, professional angel investors seek investments that have the potential to return at least 10 or more times their original investment within 5 years, through a defined exit strategy, such as plans for an initial public offering or an acquisition
