Business Angel Panel

The Business Angels Panel is an initiative of Business Angels Deutschland e.V. (BAND), Essen, the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen (RWTH), the VDI nachrichten, Düsseldorf and the University of Duisburg-Essen. Launched in 2001, the Business Angels Panel has established itself as a recognised market barometer that highlights trends and developments, is widely quoted and attracts attention throughout Europe.

The panel consists of more than 50 experienced business angels who know the market and judge from the experience of a large number of their own investments. As an active business angel, you are cordially invited to participate in the panel.

The status quo as well as the development of the market for informal, private equity are determined in a quarterly rhythm. For example: Which sectors are attracting the attention of business angels, how is the transfer of know-how organised? How is the number of investment enquiries and deals developing? How high are the investment sums?

The results of the panel are published in the VDI News and other opinion-forming media after each survey wave.
