Angel investments in medical device companies increased 50% in 2012.

Funding

The medical device industry isn't being left behind when it comes to angel investing, according to data provided to MassDevice.com from the investment data firm CB Insights.

Angel- and seed-round financing (typically $1.5 million or less) jumped dramatically in 2012, accounting for about 27% of all investment in the medical device industry. That's a 50% increase compared with 2011.

In 2012 there were 457 medtech angel- and seed-round deals worth a total of more than $187 million, for an average deal size of about $1.1 million. The year-over-year increase in the number of deals is a positive sign, easing away fears that early investors had fled medtech since the economic collapse of late 2008.
