Harvard Business School Alumni Angels of London
The Harvard Business School Alumni Angels of London is a Harvard University affiliated group committed to investing in early stage and growing businesses and supporting the rapidly growing UK start-up ecosystem.
The Harvard Alumni includes experienced entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, investment bankers, serial angel investors and others. The Screening Committee examines a large number of startup to present a small number of the most promising to potential investors at Pitch Events. The Committee members have a large range of expertise including in software, healthcare, consumer goods , security and transportation.
In the last two years the HBS Alumni Angles of London has held 8 pitch events and raised over $8 US million. 100% of the companies selected to pitch with the HBS Alumni Angels raising 100% of their capital requirements from the HBS Alumni Angels (approximately 16% of capital required) or other investors, which speaks volumes on the quality of the selection process. Individual investor commitments have ranged from £5,000 to £1,000,000. The Pitch events are fun and stimulating, different to the usual HNW client experience and provide interesting and innovative investment opportunities in an area which has good fiscal incentives.
In addition to “money only” passive investors, some investors also join the boards of start-ups and agree to undertake CEO mentorship as well as operating, business development and/or recruiting advisory.
The HBS Alumni Angels are interested in investment opportunities from early to growth equity stages. Most of these opportunities come from UK although companies from the US, Estonia, France, Ireland and Spain have also found funding through the HBS Alumni Angels of London.
