The article discusses the results of two surveys which examined trends in angel or early-stage investments for the first half of 2007. Overall, angel investing totaled $11.9 billion in the first six months, a 6 percent decline versus the same period a year ago, according to a study by the Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire. Angels made 42 percent of their investments in seed and startup capital in the first half, with the remainder going to later-stage investments. The Center for Venture Research added that 61 percent of investment exits by angels were through acquisition by another firm, 33 percent through bankruptcy, and 6 percent through an initial public offering.
