Average Round Size in Angel Deals

February 3 2012 No Commented

The Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire has been publishing statistics on angel investing for decades.  Over the past several years, the numbers of US companies funded by angel investors has increased from about 50,000 per year to over 60,000 annually.  Based on CVR reports, Mark Boslet of senior editor with Venture Capital Journal has shown that, in the past eight years, the average angel round has decreased from nearly $500,000 to under $350,000.  See my recent post on Gust.com which describes some possible explanations for this unexpected trend.
