What is Angel Investing

A Business Angel Investor uses their personal disposable income, finance and business or professional experience to invest in the growth of a small business, generally in start-up or early stage. Angel investors can make investments on their own or as part of a group (syndicate). Whilst early stage investing is high risk, it can also be enjoyable and rewarding with the opportunity to not only add value through an investment, but also though experience and expertise.

The Angels in the City Initiative

Every day, trillions of pounds flow through the City of London, home to some of the most established and renowned financial institutions in the world. Located less than one mile away, Tech City is one of the world’s fastest growing tech clusters, with over 1000 early stage companies now based there. One of the biggest constraints to allowing many of these early stage companies to exploit their true growth potential is access to capital (both financial capital and human capital). The angels in the city initiative aims to provide individuals working within the various financial institutions in the city of London with the wherewithal and knowledge to be able to make early stage investments in early stage tech companies through a series of investor workshops and entrepreneur pitching events

A full schedule of upcoming Angels in the City events can be found here.
