In 2020, there were nearly 335,000 angel investors in the US. These people funded over 65,000 companies and invested over $25 billion in these businesses. Angel investing is widely considered a key contributor to economic growth.*
Many people become angel investors to have a front row seat to innovation in many industries. It is endlessly interesting to learn about trends and to meet the inspiring entrepreneurs who are leading the way. Plus, it is a great way for angel investors to use their skills, capital and networks to support these companies.
Much angel investing is done through angel groups, such as Golden Seeds, whose members work together to identify investment opportunities, conduct due diligence, monitor the companies’ progress and provide support in many other ways. Golden Seeds is one of the largest and most active angel groups in the country.
