About Venture Capital
Private Investors, also known as Business Angels, invest their own wealth into seed and startup ventures. This type of funding may be less formal than Venture Capital, and even easier to obtain. Sometimes Private Investors are looking to support businesses which enhance the community or serve some purpose of interest to the investors (environmental, humanitarian, job creation). If you are searching for seed or startup funding, VCgate lists over 2,400 investors interested in this stage.
