Dorset Business Angels (DBA) is hosting an Angel Investor conference on Friday 27th October and is urging existing angel investors, potential investors and introducers to come along and learn more about what they do and be inspired by the exciting investor opportunities available.
The Conference, which is in its 3rd year, will host a programme of invited, eminent speakers who include, among others; Jenny Tooth, CEO of the UK British Angels Association, experienced investor Justin Levine, Business Angel and DBA Chairman Don McQueen, UKBAA former Angel Investor of the Year, Peter Cowley and Member of Parliament for Bournemouth West, Conor Burns.
Anyone wishing to attend the Conference is urged to secure their tickets on Eventbrite https://dorsetbusinessangels2017conference.eventbrite.co.uk
The DBA conference is being sponsored by Saffery Champness Chartered Accountants, Investec, Bright Blue Day and Bournemouth Borough Council.
DBA was formed in 2013 with the aim of being a catalyst in Dorset to bring together entrepreneurs and investors to help accelerate the growth of start-up businesses. Their vision is to turn Dorset into one of the UK’s best regions for setting up high growth and start-up businesses by providing quality private equity investment opportunities to local high net worth and sophisticated investors.
Four times a year companies are invited to attend an event at which they pitch their business to the savvy Angels in a Dragon’s Den type scenario. Angel investment might come from a single investor or it could be 2 or 3 Angels pooling funds together to support a company. Any investments are in the form of an equity investment and not a debtor’s loan. Investments are made across all sectors.
