FIG­URE 3: PER­CENT NUM­BER OF IN­VESTORS BY TICKET SIZE

Ap­prox­i­mately half of the in­vestor com­mu­ni­ties are early stage in­vestors: ac­cel­er­a­tors make up a quar­ter, and seed funds and an­gel net­works split the other quar­ter roughly equally. At the same time, ven­ture cap­i­tal funds rep­re­sent the sin­gle largest group of in­vestors, and ac­count for one-third (31%) of the com­mu­nity.

For this re­port, cor­po­rate in­vestors have been placed be­tween ven­ture cap­i­tal and growth in­vestors as they mostly tend to in­vest in the later stages/more de­vel­oped prod­ucts or busi­nesses. The cor­po­rate in­vest­ment space is at­tract­ing sig­nif­i­cant at­ten­tion (glob­ally and re­gion­ally), and is ex­pected to con­tinue to grow.
