Angels in 2007

The Center for Venture Research showed that angel investors continued to pour money into start-up businesses in 2007. A total of 57,120 ventures received funding to the tune of $26.0 billion with software (27%), healthcare (19%), biotech (12%), industrial/energy (8%), retail (6%) and media (5%) being the top sectors for investment.

I’m continuing to see a rapid growth in angel investor networks in rural areas and hope to see more. Are you looking at doing something in your town/region?
