WHY APPLY FOR FUNDING FROM ANGELVEST?
Higher likelihood of follow-on investment from VCs or PEs
Chances of funding later on from VCs or PEs is higher if you have accredited angel investors on the cap table. Businesses that have access to angel groups or other investing resources like AngelVest, have better chances to secure second round financing for their expansion, thus saving their business from failure.

As a group our Angels have a vast amount of industry knowledge
With vast and diverse industry backgrounds, our members are able to invest within many industries. The majority of our members are involved in industry-specific investments, according to the level of their expertise. Our membership is comprised of many expats and locals from every continent who have lived in Asia for 10+ years. With extensive and professional experience, our members can provide valuable advice to local ventures looking to expand internally or abroad or international ventures looking to expand into Asia.
Angels can bring forth vast knowledge and experience to a new company
Many angel investors were once entrepreneurs themselves and have founded several successful companies under their leadership; therefore, they will not only provide the needed capital that entrepreneurs need but they can also offer desired support, expertise, and contacts in making a business grow. An angel’s insight and resources are of tremendous value for a company’s success, and an entrepreneur should always recognize the need for help, embracing the participation of their angel investor in daily business activities.
Our Angels meet the capital requirements of most early stage ventures
Most early-stage ventures require small amounts of money, typically less than US$500k. AngelVest can provide this needed amount by pooling together our members own personal funds for the investment. Venture capitalists, on the other hand, typically pool money from different sources, generally invest in later-stage companies that have already established stability and success, and invest in enterprises in need of at least US$500k-$1 million.
Does not require high monthly fees
AngelVest does not charge companies to apply for funding. There are no outstanding payment rates such as the ones that bank loans and credit cards require. Entrepreneurs can focus on taking their new business forward rather than worrying about high monthly payments and fees that traditional lenders enforce.
