Entrepreneurs seem to confuse “angel investors” with givers of free money grants. They’re not.
An angel investor is an investor. Just like you buy Ford stock with an expectation for return, angel investors do the same. Instead of buying Dow Jones stock, they buy your company’ stock. And they too expect a return.
Angel investors do grant your wishes for growth and stability, but they do it strategically. And now that I think about it, angels do it that way too.
