The 2012 Halo Report shows angel investing for the year was stable with prior years. Pre money valuations for early-stage companies remained steady at $2.5M and round sizes were relatively consistent. The sectors and geographies getting funding are shifting, however, most notably with mobile and telecom companies gaining share of angel investment deals and dollars, while healthcare companies are losing share of angel investments. Companies in the Northwest and the Southwest US are gaining ground on the number of deals and total investments they receive over companies in California and New England.
Through our partnership with the Angel Resource Institute and CB Insights, we are studying angel group investment activity to arm entrepreneurs and investors as they seek to better understand angel investing and jump start emerging businesses.
