Business Angels's picture

I have recently considered trying to find a business angel but I dont really want one for the funding but rather for contacts and potential leads the experienced Angel might be able to bring.  I know that some angels are just all about the investment whilst others are more keen to take an active role.  What are your views on this?

Carolyn - what you're describing sounds more like a non-exec than an angel, if you don't need funding.  There are plenty of people out there who've grown businesses.  If you're really early stage, I'd recommend opting for someone you know and trust, who can open a few early doors.  Ben
