Few Queries :)
At what stage should and angel investor / VC be invited to join a start up ? What factors should be taken in consideration and other than money what else can be expected from these fund providers ??
What is the presence of angel investors / VCs for tech (non-IT) segment like microelectronics (non VLSI), nanotechnology or consumer electronics in India ?
Any takes ??

Post your message at Startupavenues.com/forums or groups.yahoo.com/group/startupavenues
Some VCs will answer it there.

I think as far as i understand you are just a start up company, mostly an individual? or team of individuals? you need to form an organisation.. that could generate some reports, that could show some progress to approach VCs
In this case i am stating that Angel investors are with small capital and VCs with big capital, but there is not such hard rule there are Angel investors with huge capitals and VCs with less budgets/capitals.. But as far i see, you should approach a Angel investor till you get a structure in place and reports with some good progress
May be you can have 50% stake along with your angel investor 50% stake.. and you can sell your 20% and angel investors 50% to a VC company almost 70% to raise big money
Angel investor is happy,as his money made returns.. you are happy because you are not just getting a small share like 5 or 10% but also you might have got cash for 20% of the business sold.
Its not as easy as discussed but have to work out the metrics right..
Angel investors are open for any business, i would say most of AI are a bit skeptical about Investing in IT..
