- Make a difference: Angels leverage their expertise to help new businesses grow and succeed, changing the economic future of an entire region by investing in small startup companies that eventually employ dozens or hundreds of people. Angels often join the boards of their portfolio companies, using their experience and knowledge to directly impact the future of the company, and in turn, make their own investment more successful.
