Angel investors meddle and micro-manage

Bringing in angel investment invites scrutiny and possibly intensive involvement, depending upon the angel investor or angel group. Generally, angel investors are more passive than venture capitalists, but this is not always the case. A successful but retired or uber-wealthy angel investor with time on his or her hands can also meddle. For some entrepreneurs and businesses, an angel investor’s involvement or what might be seen as micro-management could turn out to be more of a headache. Again, this is where angel investor-entrepreneur fit becomes vital to understand.
