The Investment Catalyst: A showcase of chemistry-led innovation for the angel investment community

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) has partnered with the UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA) to connect chemistry-using startups and scale-ups with potential investors.

We are holding our first investor event in London on 11th April 2017 to bring together the RSC’s growing network of chemical science entrepreneurs and the UKBAA’s community of investors. The event will give selected companies the chance to pitch to UK angel investors.

The partnership

Chemistry-led innovation represents a broad and compelling opportunity area for early-stage investors as it is integral to a vast number of sectors, including life sciences, energy supply and generation, the automotive industry, construction, and consumer products. The RSCcurrently supports over 300 small businesses across the UK by providing networking opportunities, grants and funding support, and help with recruitment and business promotion.

The new partnership with UKBAA, the national trade association for angel and early-stage investment, will now enable cutting-edge startups from the RSC’s community to connect with an established group of experienced investors.

The event is being held at the RSC’s London headquarters in Burlington House, on Piccadilly from 5-8pm on the 11th of April.
