The New Angel Ecosystem: The Developments, Challenges and Opportunities
We were delighted to convene so many great players across the angel and early stage market, both from the UK and internationally, at our two major events last week.
The UKBAA Winter Investment Dinner held at one Whitehall Place was attended by 235 market leaders and our Investment Forum, hosted by NatWest in the City was attended by 350 key representatives from the community who heard from over 40 speakers and panellists. These events offered a very valuable opportunity to review the changes and developments across the eco system and identify opportunities for co-ordinated action going forward – and many thanks to all of our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and audience for their fantastic contribution to the success of these events.
We will shortly be sending out our key reflections from the discussions and will keep you updated on our strategy to take a proactive role to strengthen and improve the working of the angel and early stage finance environment, working with all key players to create better connectivity and transparency in the market and to build increased capacity and capability for both entrepreneurs and investors.
