It's been a very busy year for 2013's top five angel investors.

According to data compiled by equity crowdfunding platform Fundable  and entrepreneurship advocate Empact, these heavyweights have made more than 165 individual investments this year alone; if you span their entire careers that number skyrockets to 732.

Their backgrounds and interests may be diverse and far reaching (they've had their hands in everything from mobile marketing to space travel), but these "super angels" share a keen ability to identify potential in startups.
