Boston Area Angel Groups, Launchpad and Golden Seeds, have been identified as two of the most active angel investing groups in North America last year in the HALO Report, a quarterly study of angel group activity sponsored by The Angel Resource Institute, Silicon Valley Bank and CB Insights. Launchpad, started by Ham Lord over a decade ago, is now the largest Angel Investing Group in the Northeast. Their approach is to concentrate their investing in the Boston Area.
Gold Seeds, started in 2004 in New York to serve the needs of women entrepreneurs and investors, has branches in Boston and in San Francisco, making it the fourth largest angel network in the US; Kudos to Jean Hammond and others for bringing this concept to Boston.
