Investing as a business angel offers fun and financial reward but the real world is much tougher than portrayed in the reality TV show Dragons' Den.

Anything can go wrong with a young company, from an unreliable product to a lack of customers, unexpected competition to management failure and, most commonly, simply running out of money.

But small companies are a vital part of the economy, and the tax breaks for investing are a great incentive. And supportive investors are vital.

Now is a better time than ever to invest in small companies hoping to make it big. There’s a tsunami of investable businesses disrupting old industries with new technology and new methods. The rewards can be huge if you are patient, sensible and smart. And there’s the satisfaction of helping to bring a new and valuable thing into the world.

Richard Hargreaves has invested in young companies for almost 50 years. Let him show you how being a business angel can be fascinating, fun and profitable.
