Supplementary notes

* Includes visible and non-visible markets.

The source added the following information "we can only perceive angel investment through the visible part of the market. The estimation of the visible market is an assumption EBAN considers taking into consideration previous surveys and reports published (Evaluation of EU Member States’ Business Angel Markets and Policies- CSES, 2012). As for 2016, we considered a visible market of 10%, at the same level of the one reported in 2013, 2014 and 2015. The visible market encompasses activity undertaken by investors gathered in business angel networks and either having a direct relation with EBAN or those reporting through a federation. It also comprises networks from which access to information is limited but its existence and activity is known by other players of the industry."
