Angel Academe

We are a pro-women (but not women-only) angel syndicate. We welcome all investors but are particularly keen to encourage and attract more women to angel investing.  Most, but not all, of our angels are women and we like to support ambitious women-founded and led businesses. We specialise in SIES and EIS rounds, usually £100,000-£500,000 either as the lead investor or as part of a larger investment syndicate. We like to add value to our investments so tend to invest in areas that are relevant to our experience and contacts: mainly in digital media or where technology is disrupting traditional businesses such as media and entertainment, retail, financial services and advertising. We bring professional skills in finance, strategy, operations, technology, HR and marketing. We invest in UK businesses with £1-3m pre-money valuation and who are addressing a large global market. The management team must be top notch and the business able to demonstrate early market traction for their product or service. We also look for the ability to work with external advisors and prefer businesses with a woman on the founding team. Follow us on twitter @angelacademe
