Yes. It is important for investors to take steps to mitigate the risks involved in investing in start-ups and early stage businesses, but with high risk, come high rewards. The 2009 NESTA report analysed 1080 business angel investments made between 1998 and 2008 and found that over the decade studied, angel investors received an average of 2.2 times return on their investment over an average period of 3.6 years.
It is important to remember that with early stage and start-up business investment there is a risk. However most of the businesses which are pre-vetted and have gone through our investor readiness process with high level due diligence do go on to be successful. Please see our Risk Warning for more information.
