  4. 4. What is a Business Angel Investment? “A business angel is an individual, acting alone or in a formal or informal syndicate, who invests their own money directly in unquoted businesses in which there is no family connection in the hope of financial gain and who, after making the investment, takes an active involvement in the business, for example, as mentor, adviser or member of the board. Where an investment involves a group of angels then only one of the investors may play this active role. As such, business angels are distinctive from friends and family, so-called ‘love money’, which is generally not invested for commercial gain or adds value.” Source: Mason & Harrison Report June 2010
