There is a difference between vc funding and angel investors. Normally VC funding is provided by large venture capital funds which have a global standing. Some of the large global venture funds are KKR (Kohlberg Kravis Partners), Blackstone, Tiger Global, Softbank etc. These are large institutions which specialize in early stage investing and look for a profitable exit over a period of 5-7 years. Angel investors do this at a much smaller scale. Normally angel investors are a group of investors or even a single investor. Typically, many of the people give up successful corporate careers to mentor and incubate young businesses as angel investors. The size and complexity is much lower in case of angel investors and they are quite popular in India where the funding size is quite small. VC funding comes with a lot of institutional strings attached.
