Angel investors committing less cash

Angel investors are becoming more cautious according to the findings of a new report on Angel investing in the US.

Analysis from the University of New Hampshire Centre for Venture Research at the Whittemore School of Business and Economics, discovered that the total amount of investments last year totalled  $17.6 billion. This represented a fall of 8.3 percent from 2008 investments of $19.2 billion. During the same period, however, the total number of deals increased to 57,225 from 55,480.

  • Interesting story – so more deals for less cash. Looks the business angels are as busy as ever – but expect each start-up to be more cost conscious than before?

    This could well turn out to be the case. It would be interesting to see if this pattern is being played out in the UK and Europe. It could be just a temporary blip caused by the recession.
