Indian Angel Investors Who Changed the Fates of Start-Ups

Entrepreneurs strive to realise the true potential of their business ideas and change the way things work. Startup companies lack two things, the capital required and the challenges from the bigger players. A strong backer is needed during this initial period and that’s where the angel investors come in.

Angel investors are typically the people who have passed similar phases in their life and they know it only takes an idea to for, a billion dollar company. They have the deep pocket and trust others in the latter’s plans. They not only provide the capital required but sometimes the guidance as well, to turn the new idea into a successful company.
