The article contains theoretical basis of business angels, focuses on the history and definition of business angels, their motives of investing, typology and area of interest. As well attention is paid to features of the business angel investment process. Business angels are investors of informal venture capital. Business angels or private investors or informal investors are individuals – usually very successful businessmen – ready to provide capital for startup businesses. They fill equity gap between capital sources of founders and their family and friends on one side and between formal venture capital on the other side. Business angels are hands-on investors, they provide not only capital but as well they experiences and network. As hands-on investors they play an active role in managing the business. To provide equity capital for young and risky businesses business angels are motivated not only by economic motives (the change to gain profit), but as well by their endeavor to help enterprises with unique business idea. Business angels can invest individually or become a part of business angels networks. The term “business angels” is quite unknown in Slovakia. Business angels exist here and invest, but they are anonymous. To support development of business angels and informal venture capital market as well could help creation of Slovak business angel network.
