Mostly to encourage the big boys to invest in the project, they give big investors some extra advantage: This is the ICO pre-sale, or often named "Pre-ICO". Pre-ICOs offer more tokens per [Currency_Unit], but often only allow you to enter if you invest a large amount of money, which often amounts to thousands to tens of thousands of dollars.
In short: The ICO pre-sale is the sale before the real ICO, which has a higher minimum investment, but also offers extra advantages, which is mainly used to attract big investors.
