Angel financing favors bigger ventures

Many startups, especially ones with high-growth potential, depend on receiving at least some of their funding from angel investors.  Now, a new report sheds light on what type of entrepreneurial ventures got angel money last year. 

Specifically, the report from the Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire found that financing for really early-stage companies declined and a larger percentage went to more-established ventures.  That is, 35 percent of investments in 2009 were in seed stage companies, a decrease of 10 percent from 2008. And new, or so-called first sequence investments, were 47 percent of all angel activity, a significant decline over the last two years.
