The Angel Investment industry and its growth within the UK
Source: Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS)
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) in conjunction with the British Business Angels Association, LINC Scotland, the British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants commissioned a second Annual Report on the UK Business Angel market for 2009/10.
In summary to the report Venture Giant was pleased to confirm that the angel investment market remained remarkably robust in 2009/10, despite the recessionary conditions.
As might be expected, demand for angel funding increased and while some of this additional demand was of low quality, angels actually invested in a slightly higher proportion of the deals that they were presented with.
On the supply side, the number of angels has remained virtually unchanged and the number of investments has increased slightly.
Overall deal sizes have remained fairly static, suggesting that angels are leveraging larger investments from co-investors.
With the assistance of Venture Giant, this report was recently published on the BIS website at, and can be viewed:
