What You Need to Know about Angel Investment Groups

Burton Lee, Director and Engineering Lecturer at Stanford University, recently posted informative slides from a presentation by Laurie Lumenti Garty of SVB Capital and Marianne Hudson of the Angel Capital Association.

The subject: Angel investment groups in the U.S.

Here is some of the most important information presented in the slides:

  • There are more than 300 angel investment groups in the U.S.
  • They tend to invest in companies that are in product development or are already shipping product.
  • Major investment sectors include IT, health care, and business financial services.
  • The vast majority of the investments are $500,000 or less.
  • Groups tend to co-invest with, or look for follow-on investments from, other angel groups, individual angels, and early-stage venture capitalists.

If you are seeking angel funding, you should look at the entire slide deck.
