The term 'Angel Investor' started in the 1930's when people invested in movies that were being produced in Hollywood. The term carried its way into the technology sector and today 'Angel Investor' describes an individual who invests in early stage companies or start-ups. In this course Ron Conway and Mike Maples discuss what an Angel Investor can do for early stage companies and what criteria investors use to give financial backing to companies.

They also explain how the important transition for any company from an Angel Investor to Venture Capitalists should proceed.
