Angel Academe is the UK’s leading angel network for women. Most (but not all) of our angel investors are women and we back ambitious tech startups with at least one woman on the founding team.
Our focus is creating diversity in the investment community by activating more women as angel investors. Women control 48% of net wealth in the UK, but we represent only 5%* of angel investors so are dramatically under-represented in this exciting asset class. We want to help more women enjoy the benefits of angel investing and, at the same time, help UK tech startups access the capital and support women bring.
Diversity is good business sense: at Angel Academe we believe that diverse investor and startup teams make better decisions, are more capital efficient and give better return on investment.
Both experienced and budding angel investors are welcome at our events as well as men who share our vision. We want to become (even) better investors by sharing our experience and investing together in a fun and collaborative environment.
We run regular pitch events throughout the year where investment opportunities that have been through our rigorous screening process present to our angel group.
