Regional Angels Programme

Our Regional Angels Programme invests alongside angel investors into smaller businesses across the UK to help close the regional equity gap.

The Regional Angels Programme helps reduce regional imbalances in access to early stage equity finance for smaller businesses across the UK.

The programme seeks to increase the aggregate amount of early stage equity capital that is available to smaller businesses with high growth potential across the UK. It aims to raise the profile and professionalism of angel investment activity and to attract further third-party capital alongside business angels while generating a market rate of return.

At Spending Review 2021, the government announced a further £150 million of funding over three years for the Regional Angels Programme, bringing total programme capital to £285m.
