In this segment of the Compassionate Capitalist Podcast, Karen Rands responds to an entrepreneur's question:  What is an Angel Investor?   Since 2012, the definition and the game to attract angel investors has changed.  Once considered only an activity available for an exclusive group of entrepreneurs turned investors, the access to capital and those who can invest in an entrepreneur's success to share that wealth all changed with the passage of the JOBS Act to stimulate the economy.   Karen explains the history and evolution of angel investing and the good news: thae wall between entrepreneurs and would-be investors has been removed, creating opportunity for financial success through entrepreneurism for the founders and the investors.  Listen and learn the 4 ways you can solicit for investors from the investing population outside of the structured angel network funnel.
