UK Business Angels Association

The Elite Programme helps businesses to scale up and to access capital. Companies go through an 18 months programme and tackle challenges to their next phase of growth through modules designed to also give them access to advisers, investors and peers. At the end of the 18 months, ELITE companies receive a certification and are able to access the private placement platform ELITE Club Deal to raise debt or equity funding from professional investors.

Elite are now accepting applications for our next cohort joining in November 2017, so if you’re a scaling business that meets the requirements and would like to find out more please contact
