The study analyzed survey data and investment returns from 477 angel investment ventures to evaluate factors related to financial rates of return. Principal components analysis, linear regression, and nonparametric methods were used to reduce and analyze the data. The findings indicated that only the angel investor’s perception of market risk was related to the rates of return on their investment, and that the rates of return to the angel investors was superior to alternative investments in common market indexes. Logistic regression was used to construct a model that increased predicted angel investment break even by 50% over chance.
