Conference on Business Angels Investment Research
Until now there are only a few scientists who are active in the field of Business Angels research. At the same time there is a lack of transparency in the market. We need exact figures on the investment behaviour of Business Angels. Concerning the number of active Business Angels in Germany, their whole investment, their investment amount per deal volume are a wide range of very different estimations. With the conference on Business Angels investment research BAND puts the Business Angels activities in the view point of researches and scientists. The conference determines the expectations of market participants and supports the development of a “scientific community” of Angel researchers.
