How to secure investment from angel investors

An angel investor is someone who provides a startup or small business with a cash injection to either help it get off the ground or fund expansion projects.

The angels offer this funding in exchange for equity in the business, which is something that puts many small business owners off as it means they will no longer have full control over business decisions.
