Due Diligence is often seen as not possible or relevant for an early-stage investment. Yet many business angels lose money on the majority of their investments
Can due diligence help?
Investors in early stage and start-up businesses are known as angel investors. The tag ‘angel’ coming from their tendency to operate in the margins where venture capitalists, banks and other backers choose not to go.
They also help plug a major funding gap to get such ventures off the ground and they happen to be the kind of investors who are prepared to take a risk, rely on their instincts and invest large sums without too many hard questions asked.
At least this is the accepted view.
