The Australian Association of Angel Investors (AAAI) annual survey of Angel Capital and Angel Investment statistics in Australia for 2011 is seeking input from investors, entrepreneurs and the innovation community.
The survey is an annual collection of data and this year is being managed by AAAI partner Bentleys Chartered Accountants. Bentleys is a leading accounting firm with specialist experience in the start-up business sector and an extensive background in conducting industry wide surveys.
Ruth Drinkwater, AAAI CEO, says Bentleys' involvement in the 2011 survey provides independence and rigour around the data - thereby making it a more powerful resource for the Angel Investment community.
"The primary function of the survey is to gather and distribute data on Angel activity in Australia to provide the community with a benchmark for comparison with peers internationally," Drinkwater says. "It also supports partnerships for the National Angel community to approach governments to assist in the formulation of policy and implementation of industry assistance initiatives."
Bentleys is compiling and analysing the data gathered through this and other processes and is working with AAAI to produce an overview of Angel Investment activity in Australia. The results will be presented at the 2012 National Angels Conference in Melbourne 29 Feb - 2 March.
