Investing in Private Companies – Insights for Business Angel Investors

European Booklet for Angel Investors

This publication is the result of an agreement signed between EBAN and HBAN with the purpose of serving the organisations’ mutual goals of increasing the quantity, quality and success of angel investments in Europe, thus creating a better understanding of angel investment for potential new angel investors and entrepreneurs.

This guide has been prepared to demystify investing in private companies for private investors (known as business angel investors). Investing in private companies is very different to investing in other asset classes and whilst high risk, can be rewarding and worthwhile with positive financial and non-financial outcomes.
