Why Become an Angel Investor?

Angel investing into startups has risen significantly over the last decade. Part of the increase in angel investing has been because of the availability of information via blogs and news platforms like TechCrunch, VentureBeat, etc. but also because of investing platforms like AngelList. In addition, early successes have yielded a class of angel called the “Super Angel”. Ever thought about how or why people have been investing more heavily into startups? In this episode on InvestStream, Pankaj talks about a couple of reasons why people might start investing in early stage startups.

Raising money for a startup has become a default option for most founders. Very few even consider bootstrapping anymore. That’s neither a good or bad thing and not the point of this post.

Unfortunately, not as many founders or investors discuss equity dilution as much as they should. Too many startups give up too much equity in their startup before their series A and I often see good companies struggling to raise a series A because of too much dilution early on.

What do you think is a reasonable amount of dilution going into a Series A and after closing a Series A?
