CED Mentor Partner member Silicon Valley Bank published its annual Halo Report, filled with info-graphics and detailed data about the state of angel investing in the United States. You can read the summary from Silicon Valley Bank below, and click the link to view more details.
Halo Report 2012
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.
