Report: Angel Investing Drops in 2009

” A newly released report has found that angel investors still fear to tread near start-up companies.

According to analysis by Jeffrey Sohl, director of the University of New Hampshire Center for Venture Research at the Whittemore School of Business and Economics, the total amount of angel investments in the United States last year was $17.6 billion, a decrease of 8.3 percent from 2008 investments of $19.2 billion.

The total number of deals, however, increased to 57,225, up from 55,480 in 2008.”
