The UK Angel Scene: An active angel speaks up. Permjot Valia (@permjotvalia) is a prolific angel investor and in 2008 co-founded Flight & Partners.

In 2008/09, £44.9m was invested by UK Business Angels registered to Angel Networks in UK based companies. Across the 5,500 registered Angels that is less than £10,000 per Angel. These figures are very poor and do not bode well for future economic growth. The Resource for Entrepreneurs. The Funding Network - Current funding day.
