Women take on bigger role as angel investors

October 25, 2016View for printing

The number of women who invest in small businesses is growing, and so is the number of companies led by women that receive funding.

Those findings were released Monday by the Kauffman Foundation, which does research on entrepreneurship. The foundation analyzed studies on investors done by universities and other institutions.

The percentage of women who are angel investors has increased from about 5 percent in 2004 to about 25 percent last year, Kauffman said, citing research from the Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire. Angel investors are people or groups who invest in very young or very small companies.
