EBAN Publications

One of EBAN’s main activities is to do research on the early stage and business angel markets. Annually, EBAN publishes 3 different Compendia: The Statistics Compendium, which takes the pulse of the European early stage market in terms of investment activity, the Compendium of Co-Investment Funds and the Compendium of Fiscal Incentives, which map the tax schemes and investment funds available for angel investors throughout Europe. On top of this, EBAN works together with its members and partners such as the EU, OECD and AFME, on other research related publications and position papers.
