Why is there a difference in the minimum investment required from a venture capital fund or an angel investor group?
The main difference between an angel investor group and a venture capital fund is that angel investors are usually investing their own money into a start-up business, while venture capital funds are limited partnerships that have a fund of pooled investment capital with which to invest in a number of companies. Generally, angel investor groups are investing in companies that are at an earlier stage of development as compared to venture capital funds.
Minimum investment amounts were determined based on consultation with industry associations and represent typical investment amounts in each industry.
