Angels Den

Angels Den has been a hive of activity over the last few months and we have been very busy helping great businesses get funding such as Sapphires Model ManagementBlue Cow YogaThe Truffle CompanyJustRefundsVideo DirectThe Great Projects and Front Up Rugby to name a few.

Our unique SpeedFunding™ events are continuing to be a fantastic way to fast track to funding. We are now holding regular events throughout the UK, Singapore, Middle East and Hong Kong which has amounted to over 3000 individual one to one pitches to Angel Investors with an average of over 90% of  businesses getting interest from at least one investor.

New to Angels Den...
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 London Tech Club. Aiming to bring together the most innovative technology start-ups with Angels who have the desire to invest, and the experience to add value, if you are interested in getting involved or would like to find out more, please contact the Tech Club Manager Chris Wheatcroft.

Masterclasses for Business Angels...
Continuing on from our very popular programme of Angel Investment Training which we ran last year, we will be running more sessions and Masterclasses in the coming months. Last year’s programme included sessions on Due Diligence, EIS, Tax & Intellectual Property, Valuations and Legal documents, including our free Edwards Wildman Investment Documents Service, as well as a number of Introductory sessions. Our Masterclasses and training sessions are a great opportunity to find out information from the basics of investing to more complex hot topics. Anyone is welcome to attend our sessions whether you are a seasoned Angel or have had no previous experience of investing.

Time poor but keen to invest? Why not consider Armchair Investing with Angels Den...
If you or some of your clients like the idea of being a Business Angel but don’t have large amounts of time to devote, then you might want to consider investing in a selection of Cleantech companies via Ipex. They use their expertise to select and add value to the best businesses in return for a share of each company. Click here for more information.
