What you need to know about becoming an angel investor in India

The big advantage of entering a company at angel or seed round is the ability to gain from its growth long before it becomes publicly listed. The big disadvantage is a much higher level of risk. However, going through an angel platform can reduce the risk. Typically, these platforms perform an initial round of due diligence before startups are allowed to pitch and even after investment they perform additional checks and monitoring of the startups. According to Nakul Saxena, head - fund strategy & investor relations, LetsVenture, the platform provides a strong curation process, performs due diligence, manages fund accounting and portfolio information for the investors and protects investor rights, “We used to get 50-60 new investors every week till 2021. Last year that number doubled to 100-120," he added.
