What is an angel group and why do they matter for a thriving local economy?
Angel investing is a type of private equity investing, in which individual investors attempt to earn higher returns by taking on more risk compared with investing in the public markets. Angel investing is also a great way to support the health of our Yukon enterprises. Angel investors typically finance a business startup at the very early stages.
