  • Introduction

    By the use of digital media we have created a platform that caters to a community of business angels – to harness and match Angel Capital with unique business ventures – to deliver accelerated growth.

     

    By embracing the new Millennial era, we have built a digital platform, environment and ECO-System…

    • ... to empower individual investors and transform the way they can access and engage in IMPACT INVESTMENTS
    • ... to give birth to a global Network of Angel investment Communities
    • ... to leverage the power of ANGEL CAPITAL (a unique mix of human and financial capital) to accelerate the growth of company investments

    Europe’s largest community of Business Angels

    The Angel Business Club was formed in June of 2015 with a vision to transform the way people engaged in and managed their investments. The mission was to think differently and focus on the investor as the catalyst to business success as well as being able to curate outstanding investment opportunities – opportunities that its members would not normally be able to access – the solution was to create a Club wherein the collective financial strength could open those doors.

     

    ABC follows some critical and key principals

    1. Transparency – we recognized the importance of information and communication – members are constantly kept up to date with the latest developments on their investments – good or bad. We actively encourage member involvement in all Participation Companies
    2. Respect – our Participation Companies and members agree with our ethos of mutual respect which promote active engagement
    3. Active Investment Management – we are entrepreneurs – we and our network actively participate in the development of our Participation Companies to drive growth, fix problems and be a part of the journey. We call this “Human Capital” and it is our special ingredient.
    4. Ethics – we fund and accelerate the growth ethical businesses and as much as possible we focus on Impact Investment

     

    We deliver all this through our ever-evolving Eco-System – we have webinars in 5 languages weekly, a monthly education program, a monthly insights program where successful business people present market sectors and dynamic and Club events and activities, among others. It is fair to say we facilitate a lot of conversations focused on the development and growth of the Club diversified activities.

    Today we have over 10,000 members from all over Europe and beyond. Our growing member base is one of the reasons behind our success. Their active involvement has benefited many of our “Club” – or Participation Companies. 

    The Club is not a Crowd Funding platform it is a private members club whose active members pay a monthly membership fee. The Club invests the profit from these membership fees in companies and its members' benefit from a free allocation of shares monthly.  This is the reason we can access quality Companies as the Club can fund as principal – hence we get to see the exciting and well-developed opportunities – opportunities our members would not normally be able to access. 

    The Club, however, through its regulated adviser – Angel Corporate Finance - launched the world first community funding platform, which is available on www.angeleqt.com.

    Members are also invited to participate in investing over and above their membership fees – Angel Corporate Finance, which is approved by the Financial Conduct Authority, arranges all investment opportunities.

     

    2 successful IPOs in 18 Months

    The Club's focus is curating outstanding investment opportunities with a focus on accelerated growth and clear exit strategies. That is why in 18 months we have had 2 successful IPOs from our first 8 investments, with more to follow...
