Angel Finance: Fuelling Local Growth in the Midlands

With only 38% of investments happening outside of London despite London only hosting 19% of SME businesses, the regions and nations tracker by the British Business Bank shows that external finances for small businesses is still not evenly spread across the UK.

UKBAA and British Business Bank are committed to targeting the disparity of investment across the UK’s regions and nations and in turn invite you to join us to learn why supporting a thriving, high-growth ecosystem in the Midlands is so important and how you too can get involved.

By joining this event on 8th March, you will find out:

  • How angel investing works and its importance in an effective start-up community
  • What funding options are available for early-stage businesses in your local area
  • Hear from successful investors in the region who will share their experience of investing in early stage businesses.
