This study examined the impact of distance on business angel investing in the UK. It identified a number of significant relationships between deal characteristics and the distance between the investor and the business. Investments in technology-based ventures, those involving co-investors and those located in the economic core regions of the UK are more likely to be proximate investments, and larger investments are more likely to be longer distance investments.
