Angel investors typically finance startups in exchange for equity in the company. Unlike a VC, however, angels are private individuals—or a group of individuals—investing their own money. They provide capital for a set fraction of the company–usually 15 to 20%. But an area in which they are not always available is for faltering businesses that are looking to maintain working capital to stay afloat during economic downturns.
