Halo, the Northern Ireland business angels, is a network of over 200 angels interested in high growth NI companies. They have invested over £12m since 2009.

Halo operates a unique private video website where members can view the pitches in full within 24 hours of pitching. Between meetings, new pitches can also be added to this site.

NI has 2 top flight universities, agricultural colleges and private companies providing a pipeline of new and innovative ideas. There is a strong local culture of technical innovation and entrepreneurship, backed by good regional aid including cross border all-Ireland support.

Pitching companies are carefully selected and prepared to provide succinct high quality presentations in a very relaxed and sociable atmosphere. Note that Halo can only support NI companies or those with a significant NI presence.

Companies interested in pitching at Halo can find full details on www.haloni.com. Interested potential angels, including those from outside NI, are welcome to read more on this site, view the short informational videos and attend Halo as a guest angel.

Halo is currently run by Invest NI and Intertrade Ireland.
