1. A real return on investment
Angel investing is a lucrative way of generating wealth. Most angel investors expect a higher return on their angel investments than what they would typically get had they chosen to put their capital fund on other financial markets such as the stock market. An angel investment is typically expected to earn seven dollars from every dollar of angel fund invested in a span of seven years after taxation.
2. A compelling reason for them to invest
There are three kinds of angel investors at least in North America. The first kind is what is referred to as a self-indulgent investor whose reason for investing is the thrill of creating something new and helping early stage companies forge a new path. Altruistic angels on the other hand, care about their community and so they are more interested in providing angel funds that would finance startups around the world whose aim is to help make society better. The third kind is what is often referred to as a serial entrepreneur or an economic angel investor. They are the ones who are hands on in business development and are often invested in many companies who apply for funding.
3. Companies with reliable management teams
Angel investors especially New York angels look for companies with experienced and trustworthy leaders. A CEO and cofounder worth his salt must learn to assemble a team with expertise in managing human resources, sales, accounting, research and development and a competitive technical advantage in their chosen field of business such as in real estate. So if your company is into software development, management team must display technical expertise on said field.
4. A well-constructed business plan
A solid vision is what drives a company forward. Angel investors, especially those investors in New York look into how NYC startups create their marketing plans, anticipate future incomes and how they understand their target market. They also look into how capital funds will help these startups expand their business and increase their market share.
5. Companies with structured investment options
Angel investments are often given as direct loans, however Angel investors and venture capital firms especially those in New York City also look for private equity options. Companies must therefore be ready to give up a certain degree of control in order to make use money coming from New York angels or venture capital. Angels based in NYC will look for formal contingency options on their investment in their shareholder agreement.
6. Chances to take active roles in the company
Most New York City angels especially those with founder and CEO backgrounds like to get involved actively in the companies they fund. They can take on many roles such as being named as part of the board of directors or being a managing partner. They sometimes commit more so they can also help secure the return on their funds investment.
7. A possible exit strategy
business schools teach us to always manage risks. Angel investors prefer to have exit strategies and detailed analysis of risk for every available strategy.
New York City is a global financial hub so there is no shortage of capital firms looking to grow their wealth and/or development stage companies wanting to grow a business concept. Companies on their seed stage look for financing through venture capitalists and/or angel investors. The best place to find angel investors and venture capital firms is through Funded.com.

An angel investor or venture capitalist with extensive experience will expect an ROI of not lower than 15-20% rate yearly on seed and early stage of their startups they are investing in. Anything below said percentage range might not be too encouraging for an angel investor or venture capital firm to invest. As a startup company looking for venture capital, you must consider the amount you are planning to raise, the kind of ownership you are prepared to offer and then offer a return based on said factors. A venture capital firm often sees a bigger risk in these types of investments so it is important for them to see that the company they are investing in has a potential for high returns.
