About JITO Angel Network (JAN)

What is Angel Investing?

Angel investors are usually experienced entrepreneurs or individuals who themselves have been through the same phase and the ones who understand what it takes to create a billion dollar company out of an Idea. They invest in start-ups and early stage companies using a high-risk, high-return matrix. The majority of start-ups fail within the first five years of their operations. This makes the job of an angel investor even more valuable. Apart from investing funds, most angels provide practical advice, industry connections, and mentoring to founders. The goal is to create great companies by providing value creation, while at the same time helping investors realize a high return on investment.With handsome amounts of money in their pockets and a will to trust others with their finances, these ‘Angels’ step in and provide the initial support and sometimes mentorship that helps start-ups successfully take over these crucial and challenging times.

Most angel investors are current or retired executives, business owners or high net worth individuals who have the knowledge, experience, connections and funds that help start-ups match up to industry standards. More than the funds, it is the guidance and mentorship of the angels that helps a start-up in its early days.
