Statistics claim that among US companies that received angel investment funding last year, the average amount of capital raised was about $450K. While the top tier of angel investments go to the technology, medical and healthcare sectors, investments have been made in a wide variety of business sectors. The amount of active angel investors in America continues to grow, with the Small Business Administration estimating that there are now over 250,000 active angel investors in the US, and that they provided funding for about 30,000 companies per year.

Some of the greatest opportunities start from undercapitalized entrepreneurs who cannot get traditional financing from banks. Banks are lending less than ever to small businesses and start-ups while angel investors are increasingly disenchanted with underperforming equity markets and low interest rates. Questionable accounting scandals just make the situation even worse. By using previously unavailable technology like this website, there now exists a greater opportunity than ever to bring both parties together to finance the next great enterprise. CTL is committed to bringing investors the best returns and to connecting entrepreneurs to the most effective investment streams.

With the current market fluctuating rapidly, many financial institutions have tightened their lending policies that were already somewhat difficult for new businesses and entrepreneurs to obtain. At the same time, more investors are taking funds out of the stock market and looking to other methods of financing, such as Angel Investment. This makes the market somewhat more competitive for angel investment, as most entrepreneurs will look at this option.

In the past, most angel investments have been locally based, with a majority of them being located near the investor’s base. However, with the ability to reach people worldwide, our network plans on opening up the market.
