“Angel investors play a vital role in the economy, bringing patient capital, business experience and skills to support the growth of smaller businesses.”
Regional Angels Programme
The £100m Regional Angels Programme is being established to help 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.
