About Angel Academe
Angel Academe has a very strong pipeline of investment-ready, women-led technology startups. All which have been through a rigorous screening process. Angel Academe are a pro-women (but not women-only) angel investment group focussed on technology and creating diversity in the investing community. Over half of the angels are women and they support ambitious women-founded technology businesses.
The Judges felt that Angel Academe should be recognised for highlighting the importance of encouraging more women to invest and with a special focus on investing in growth potential women-led tech businesses. The syndicate which includes also some men, is offering training for new women investors and has already demonstrated a keen appetite to invest in a number of women led businesses, whilst drawing on the skills of experienced investors to bring ongoing support to the portfolio businesses.
We look forward to following the Angel Academe growth story in the years ahead!
