Angel Investing in the North Summit

 Screenshot 2023-06-12 at 13.03.19

On Thursday the 15th of June - NorthInvest, UKBAA, and the British Business Bank are holding an event in Manchester called “Northern Angel Summit”.

This event is designed to inspire and connect angel investors across the North.

With Northern founders being more concerned with their access to regional funding than any other region, there is a clear need for more angel investing capacity to be established across the regions and for angel groups and networks to collaborate further.

This conference will discuss how we can co-create a connected eco-system of angel investors and angel groups across the regions to support more SME’s to leverage funding, inspire more people to take up angel investing as well as upskilling the current crop of angel investors across the Northern Powerhouse.

And that’s not all, our co-founder Dominic McGregor will be speaking as part of a panel on how to shape an angel investment strategy. 

So, if you’re an angel investor or prospective angels, sign up to this free event here.
