Statistics Compendium 2019 European Early Stage Market Statistics

EBAN Publishes its Annual Statistics Compendium – Reporting on the Activity of Business Angels and Business Angel Networks in Europe

EBAN, the European Business Angels Network, is delighted to announce the publication of our Annual Statistics Compendium – Europe’s most extensive annual research on the activity of business angels and business angel networks. The Statistics Compendium provides information on the overall early stage market and on how business angel networks operate, as well as insight into their investment attitudes.

EBAN’s Statistics Compendium is based not only on the information provided by European business angel networks (hereafter BANs), Federations of BANs, individual business angels and other validated early stage investors who responded to EBAN’s Survey, but also based on data published in 122 other sources which include: Dealroom.coZephyr database (Bureau van Dijk), Crunchbase, Startup Watch, European Commission National Venture Capital Associations, governmental BA co-investment funds and fiscal incentive reports, and national and regional research studies on angel investment.

Compared to 2018, the European angel investment market grew by 9.77%, a record year for the industry. Angel investors represented the most important providers of risk capital, accounting for nearly 60% of the total early stage investment market.
