Angel Investing Trends for the New Year

There was a recent article on the Fox Business website about Angel Investing Trends for 2012. I have to agree with the fact that investors must be getting frustrated with seeing the same type of startups over and over again.  One investor mentioned they are very tired of seeing companies related to social networking, group commerce and music sharing. One trend they did mention that I also think is going to be big this year is technology geared toward baby boomers. Especially with the growing aging population in the U.S., this is a great segment for new companies to target.

Also, the use of such websites as Gust and AngelList have grown significantly in the startup and angel investing community, so if you’re looking to raise money or connect with early-stage investors and company founders, these are great resources to start using.
