We are media partners with the American Capital Association which is a vital link for angel investors nationwide. The North American professional association of active accredited investors provides unparalleled access to trending ideas and professional knowledge to help improve returns and promote effective public policies for angels and startups. Although not a funding source, ACA provides entrepreneurs an inside view into how angels think.
The American Angel Campaign
Every year 200,000+ American angels invest an estimated $25B in more than 71,000 startup deals. Although angels have powerful impact, little else is known about these high-net worth individuals. This first-ever study will define the American Angel today.
Jointly launched by the Angel Capital Association and Wharton Entrepreneurship, this ground-breaking campaign benchmarks the mix of angel investors across America by age, gender, ethnicity and pinpoint any commonalities such as the path that got them there or how they discover and fund early-stage companies. The 2017 results confirm some assumptions, but include many surprises.
