Many entrepreneurs have great business ideas and growth potential. Providing equity finance, combined with access to skills, advice, and market contacts can be the most effective way to help them to accelerate their development and achieve commercial success.
Angel Investors use their spare financial capacity to invest in small businesses at the start-up or early stage of development. They take shares in return and seek to use their experience and contacts to support the growth of the business. Angels can invest on their own, but frequently choose to invest in syndicates where they can take the lead or a more passive role. Angel investing is the most significant source of investment in start-up and early-stage businesses seeking equity to grow their business.
At Azione, we look to bring passion and commitment to every angel investment assignment. At the core of the firm lies a robust set of shared values underpinning the reputation of the Azione team as trusted advisors and partners who continually search for additional value in each investment in which the firm is involved. We believe excellence demands knowing more about our investing environment than the market and using that knowledge effectively to engage the global investor world in open and honest debate.
Azione has a reputation of introducing high-quality and unique opportunities to investors. We represent only investment opportunities in which we believe in following a stringent deal selection process. These opportunities are offered only to well-informed or sophisticated investors who can understand, accommodate, and manage the risks associated. We thus make it important to understand the needs and capacity of prospective investors and to respect their investment process.
Beyond these investments, Azione continually builds upon our trusted relationships with our investors to create successful and enduring investment partnerships. We trust, respect, and like the people with whom we choose to work, and we consider our broad network of investors to lie at the heart of our growth. Azione greatly values the close relationships and differentiated dialogue forged over the past few years with each individual.
