29 Feb 2007 investment metrics: Angel network tracks $120M in venture deals
Madison, Wis. – The Wisconsin Angel Network says it tracked more than $120 million in early- and later-stage deals in 2007, but that may not be the full extent of investment activity in the state.
WAN said many deals go unreported and it will attempt to capture unreported investment rounds in its forthcoming 2007 Risk Capital Report, an analysis of entrepreneurial investing in Wisconsin.
As part of the report, attorneys across Wisconsin are tallying the deals they led for entrepreneurs last year. The report will be released in late spring, and the 2006 report is available online.
Another sign of investment activity is WAN’s deal-flow pipeline, an on-line tool linking entrepreneurs with angel networks and funds. More than 160 entrepreneurs have uploaded executive summaries that are accessible to WAN’s 26 investor members.
