Business angels are recognized as playing a key role in financing the start-up and early stages of new ventures. However, our knowledge of how business angels operate remains limited and highly fragmented. This Handbook provides a synthesis of research on business angels. It adopts an international perspective to reflect the spread of angel investing around the world. The increasing number of government initiatives to promote angel investing is also reflected in the book with an assessment of the most common support schemes. Adopting an international focus, the expert group of contributors examine business angels themselves, the evolution of the market, the various stages of the investment process and the role of public policy in influencing angel investment. They each conclude their chapters with an agenda for future research on business angels. Students and scholars of entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial finance and related subjects will find this book to be an invaluable resource for their work. In particular, they will benefit from the research agendas that conclude each chapter. This Handbook will also be of interest to policy-makers and other practitioners looking to enhance their understanding of the design and need for such interventions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`The Handbook of Research on Business Angels provides an excellent summary of the state of the art in angel investing. With all of the articles compiled within the unifying theme of the latest business angel research the Handbook is a must-read for academics, policy-makers and anyone who wishes to gain an in-depth understanding of the current thoughts and trends in business angel investing.' -- Jeffrey E. Sohl, University of New Hampshire, US
`The Handbook of Research on Business Angels provides an up-to-date overview of important topics in business angel research. It explores novel areas, such as research on business angels in emerging economies, and how crowdinvesting relates to business angels. This volume is a must-read for anyone considering starting research on business angels.' -- Sophie Manigart, Ghent University, Belgium
`It is not possible for government to have a coherent and integrated innovation/enterprise policy without supporting new venture finance and, critically, business angels. Landstroem and Mason's timely compendium of our evolving research knowledge takes us significantly closer to knowing "the unknown and unknowable". Its inclusive world perspective embracing developed and emerging economies is particularly welcome. Similarly, analyses of women investors, tax incentives, BA Networks, and the potential importance of "equity crowdfunding" are each central to our understanding. This Handbook is of material value to scholars and policy practitioners alike.' -- Gordon Murray, University of Exeter, UK
