The Angel Capital Association (ACA) recently released the results of a survey on the angel’s outlook for 2008. In the report over half of the angel groups expect deal flow to increase in both quantity and quality. Exits in 2008 are not expected to be stellar. Also, a down trending stock market may slow some angel investments. The top industry segments expected to receive investment are:
• Software (83 percent)
• Medical Devices (75%)
• Industrial/Energy – including “clean tech” (64%)
• Business Products and Services (64%)
• IT Services (63%)
