I am looking for an angel who could also work as an employee. I need someone to drive the business development who has experience in start-ups. He would then have more responsibilities than an advisors. I am in the Bay Area.
Any advices on how to find angels? Do you think it is possible to have them as employees (or partners)?
It is possible to have an investor as a partner or active participant in the day to day business. Considering the challenges of starting a business, I`d say it`s much more important to be "sure" that you (and them) share common values, passion and commitment - than it is to have their capital.
I`d suggest separating the capital and the partner search.
