investisseur individuel fortuné


Explanation:
Hi,

I know it comes too late, but I found something that might interest you concerning the business angel issue:

business angel
investisseur individuel fortuné n. m.

Terme(s) à éviter: business angel

Déf. :
Personne fortunée qui investit du capital de risque dans des entreprises naissantes ou en difficulté financière et qui, à cette occasion, fait profiter de son expérience d'homme ou de femme d'affaires aux entrepreneurs en quête de financement et de conseils.

Note :
Les termes « ange investisseur » et « ange financier » sont des appellations fantaisistes calquées sur l'anglais.
Ces personnes fortunées investissent généralement sans garantie auprès d'entrepreneurs avec lesquels ils n'ont pas de lien de parenté. Ils contactent souvent eux-mêmes les entreprises attirés par le secteur ou par les gestionnaires.

[Office de la langue française, 1998]

Even though you had to look for the English term, I thought it might be of interest to you that in Canada, we call this "un investisseur individuel fortuné", as the colourful images English often uses do not fit the more abstract spirit of the French language.

Greetings,
Connie
