Tech Club opens its doors!




Following the phenomenal success of the London Angel Clubs and in response to sustained demand from large numbers of Angels, Angels Den is pleased to announce the launch of the new Tech Club. I'd also like to introduce myself to those of you I haven't met, I am the latest addition to Angels Den and will be managing the Tech Club, assisted by Alex Hilbrown.

The Tech Club aims to bring together the most innovative technology start-ups with Angels who have the desire to invest, and the experience to add value. The investment opportunities are pre-screened to ensure that they meet the investment criteria set out by the founder members of the Club.

The founder members of the Club are a diverse group of experienced investors, successful technology entrepreneurs and finance professionals. Our Lead Angel, Mitch Pender, is a partner at Antrak Capital (a VC firm specialising in high-growth technology companies) and has a wealth of experience in tech start-ups from inception to sale.

As with our London Angel Clubs, each Club member is able to share their expertise and insight to co-invest in successful companies and share the costs of due diligence. The Tech Club Manager will facilitate the screening process, ensure that the entrepreneurs are ready to pitch, and co-ordinate the follow up and due diligence, making the process as easy and straightforward as possible for all involved. All standard equity investments made by the Club will be able to make use of the free Investment Document Service from Edwards Wildman, available exclusively to Angels Den.

Our next London Tech Club event is on Wednesday 22nd February at Edwards Wildman from 4 pm to 7pm. If you are already a founder member of this Club or the London Angel Club and would like to attend, please contact  Alex@angelsden.co.uk.
