UKBAA Angel Hub Launch – Bristol

One of the greatest challenges identified by scale-up (fast-growth) business founders in the West of England is that of access to investment. The lack of transparency of available regional funds and funders is something that needs to be addressed. Meanwhile, investors lament the lack of information about deal flow and investment infrastructure.

The Quarterly Investment Briefing is a new, regular gathering of investors at all stages, it is designed to create space for investors to:

  • Discover new opportunities and investment vehicles on the horizon
  • Learn about key investment news – internationally, nationally and regionally
  • Connect and collaborate with one another and share good practice

This inaugural event will also see the launch of the Bristol UKBAA Angel Hub, at Engine Shed. A partnership with UKBAA, this initiative will enable members of the Angel Hub to access to Engine Shed Business Lounge, to learn about training and pitch events locally and to join this Quarterly Investment Briefing community.

Guiding Principles
The Quarterly Investment Briefing exists to encourage and enable more investment activity and to provide a platform to share good practice in the West of England. It is an initiative run by the Engine Shed in partnership with KPMG, Smith & Williamson and TLT. Those who attend the Quarterly Investment Briefing share three common principles:

  • Whoever attends is an active or potentially active investor, or manager of investors – or enabler of investment activity.
  • Whatever is presented is informative, fact-based and regionally relevant.
  • We value the opportunity to learn equally with the opportunity to share.
