New figures from the latest Young Company Finance Index, published by the New Zealand Venture Investment Fund (NZIF), says that angel networks and funds invested $61.2 million into 94 Kiwi companies across 132 deals in 2015, compared with just $56.4 million across 119 deals in 2014 – a 9% year-on-year increase and new record for the New Zealand investment sector.

Recent figures reveal a fairly dismal angel investment performance in New Zealand over the last five years. The amount of angel funding recorded by the NZ Venture Investment Fund ($50 million in the 2013-2014 year) has barely increased beyond 2009-2010 levels.
