What Percentage Should You Give an Angel Investor?

When it comes to giving an angel investor a percentage of your total profit, it is typically 20% to 25%. However, this number can differ depending on the initial contract between you and the angel investor.

It is important to have all details ironed out before any money changes hands, as this will help to keep the angel investor feeling secure in their investment. A contract drawn up by a lawyer is typically the best way to handle this, so that everyone is on the same page from the start.

What if the angel investor wants to sell their stake in the startup?

If the angel investor wants to sell their stake in the startup, they may do so at any time and for any price, except if a special agreement was signed. There is no right or wrong price, and no right or wrong time to sell. It is entirely up to the angel investor.

If the angel investor sells their stake in the startup, the new owner will be entitled to all future profits or losses from the startup. They will also be responsible for all future costs associated with the startup.

What if the startup is not profitable?

Several things could happen if a startup is not profitable. The startup could be shut down, the team could be laid off, and the shareholders could lose money.

If the startup is not profitable and not growing, the startup might be shut down. This means that all of the work that has been done on the startup will be for nothing. The team will be laid off, and the shareholders will lose money.
