Angel investment is booming worldwide
Early and post-early stage equity markets are developing rapidly as well. In 2019, 320,000 angel investors invested more than 10 billion EUR in Europe; in the US, 340,000 angel investors invested more than 26 billion USD. The size of the global investment in early-stage businesses in 2019 reached $60 billion, up 20% from $50 billion in 2018. The $60 billion market for angel investment promises a $150 billion exit in the next 5 to 7 years.
OECD reports show that more than 96% of the world’s economy is driven by SMEs, entrepreneurs and startups. Many governments have understood the importance of the early-stage investment market in the creation of new jobs and social justice in their countries and have therefore implemented new regulations that provide tax incentives for angel investors, corporate ventures and startups.
Why is angel investment so important?
The reason is simple: only angel investors have the know-how and the networks to put startups and scaleups into the capital markets. If we can create an innovative financial plan for early exits, this will mean more jobs and social justice in a shorter period of time.
