This section draws largely on the experiences of angel investors in the US, so if you work in a different country (with a different entrepreneurial ecosystem and market) the content may not be easily applicable to your situation. While angel investing is growing in the Asia-Pacific it remains less common for a range of reasons, each unique to the country and even city. Factors like attitudes to risk, the availability (or lack) of growth capital, and the protections offered to investors by local regulations significantly influence early-stage investment activity. These need to be taken into account when considering how to engage in or support angel investing.
We hope that you can learn some useful lessons and glean some practical ideas from this section, but advise that some contextualisation is required before strategies are developed.
