Angel investors fund the majority of startups in the US at a time in their development when capital is hard to come by. Tax credits for investment in early stage business are a common policy measure aimed at fostering innovation and entrepreneurship. On June 24, 2014, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) announced the introduction of Angel Tax Credit Act, which would further incentivize angels across the US to invest significant capital in startups (http://www.murphy.senate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/murphy-introduces-bill-to-incentivize-investment-in-startup-businesses).
This session will offer an overview of US angel tax credits and a case study of a Wisconsin angel investment (TrafficCast), which created significant job growth after each round of funding. It aims to answer some questions as to the advantages and disadvantages of angel investor tax credits, including: Do they pay their way? Do they create high quality jobs? And what is their effect on the amount and quantity of investment?
