UKBAA is delighted to announce the shortlist for the UK Angel Investment Awards 2017. We received a record number of nominations this year and had excellent feedback from our judges, who commented on the exceptionally high standard of entries.

We are very much looking forward to celebrating the achievements of the winners – and of course all those shortlisted – at the UK Angel Investment Awards & Gala Dinner at The Dorchester Hotel in London on 6th July. The event is set to be a fantastic celebration of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and the investors that have backed them. We are thrilled that Emma Sinclair MBE – serial entrepreneur, UNICEF ambassador and the youngest person in the UK to take a company public – will be presenting the awards this year!
