The Angel Venture Fund Honduras helps Honduran small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) obtain funding for their growth needs, and guidance in operating their businesses successfully from the Angel investors. Our angel equity investors add value to Honduras SMEs by providing capital to the businesses so they can expand production. With angel equity financing, the SMEs avoid the risk of debt financing, as well as bankruptcy risk if the firm cannot make interest payments throughout the life of the financing. We also provide guidance on marketing strategy, supply chain management, operations efficiency and financial management.
