Investments related Innovation businesses

Individually, angel investors invest, on average, between $25,000 and $100,000 per project. Depending on their level of syndication, angel investors, as a group, will invest between $250,000 and $1,000,000 per project. Anges Québec Capital can add up to $500,000 to the angels’ investment. Businesses are generally valued at between $1M$ and $4M.

On a general basis

On average, each angel investor will enter into several investment projects per year and will have a portfolio of between 3 and 20 companies. Angels often have many active investments at any one time.

Generally, angels accept a 4 to 7 year investment horizon before an exit (which is however a duration of 2 to 4 years for real estate). It should be noted that because of the risks associated with such early stage investments and the value they add to their investments, angels typically are looking for a significant return on their investment.
