Angel investors are often the lifeline of small businesses in the start-up rich world we live in. However, while for these small companies the inflow of funds is a god send, it takes a certain expertise and business savviness to be at the other end of the spectrum. Becoming an angel investor can pose major risks and needs a thorough grounding in the basics of small business investments.
