When I started at Technical.ly almost four years ago, one of the things that then-editor Chris Wink told me was that I should find Philly’s angel investors.
They weren’t a well-known class of the local technology community, he said, whether by design or otherwise. (For what it’s worth, I’ve been doing all right but I could still do better. Yo, angel investors, call me.)
Well, apparently, that elusiveness it’s not just a Philadelphia phenomenon. That’s why Wharton professor Laura Huang is leading a study to better understand angel investors.
In partnership with the Angel Capital Association, Huang is conducting what she called the largest study of angel investors in the country. She hopes to create a profile of the angel, looking at age, gender, ethnicity and professional history.
“We believe this study will help identify characteristics of angel investors that have never before been understood,” said ACA executive director Marianne Hudson in a statement.
