What is the Difference between the Lead Investor and Angel Investor ?
A venture capital firm or individual investor that organizes a specific round of funding for a company. The lead investor usually invests the most capital in that round. Also known as “leading the round.”
An angel investor is a high net worth individual who puts their own finance into the growth of a small business in the early stage as seed funds for debt or equity ownership. They invest in the formative stages of the startup’s business and usually start contributing funds when the startup has something to present, such as a prototype of the product or service.
