Often the hardest capital to raise is in the early stages of a business, especially if you are a founder that doesn’t have a network of wealthy friends and family to tap - this is where angel investors come into the equation. According to PitchBook and the National Venture Capital Association more than 3,000 new angel investors are projected to make their first deal this year, up from 2,725 last year with the amount of money angels are investing into start-ups reaching $2.1 billion in the first half of this year, compared with $2.6 billion for all of 2020. We know tracking angels down can be a time-consuming and sometimes elusive project. We’ve done the leg work and compiled a list of angel investors that have been active in the beauty and wellness category in the first half of 2021.
