That all depends on the investor. I know some angels with more money than most venture capital firms, and very few venture capital firms (by virtue of their operating model incompatible with finding outliers) have the foresight capable of fundamentally envisioning and supporting a change of the norm (hence few venture capitalists make consistent monolithic venture-style returns for their investors, let alone pick innovation to benefit the world).
So the question you asked is best reduced to what dancing partner you would pick for your next dance. If you are a good dancer, you are likely to pick a good dancer as your partner. If you are not so good, you may let yourself be led by a better one. The best chance of success highly dependent on the expanse of your purview of success.
