Ontario angel investments up 41 percent

By Francis Moranthe Network of Angel Organizations - Ontario

In yet another good sign of growing angel investor interest in backing promising startups, the Network of Angel Organizations – Ontario today announced that its members reported a 41-percent increase in direct investment into 77 Ontario companies over a 12-month period in 2012-2013. This comes on the heels of a report two weeks ago from the National Angel Capital Organization that its members injected $40.5-million into 139 young companies┬áin 2012. Although NAO-Ontario did not reveal how much had been invested over the past 12 months, it said its members have put a total of $91.6-million into 169 Ontario companies since 2007.
