We are passionate about Entrepreneurs at Investing Women. Most of our business angels have been and still are entrepreneurs and we understand the journey, the challenges and the excitement.
We try to help everyone who makes a serious approach to us, even when investment isn’t the outcome. We also consider all businesses for investment; not only women-led companies; but we are particularly keen to encourage growth with women entrepreneurs.
What to Expect
Our usual range of investment is between £50K and £250K of seed capital in early stage ventures that are based in Scotland.
We are also able to look at considerably larger investments collaborating with other angel groups.
Often people aren’t ready for investment when they first make an approach and simply want to learn about angel investing and being prepared for it. Visit our events programme to view our current schedule of Events & Training.
If you are ready for investment you will need to have a good business plan, summary, financial projections, possibly a pitch video and concise slide deck. If you would like to approach us at Investing Women Angels, please first send your Executive Summary (usually 2-3 pages) and a slide deck if you have one ready (Dropbox or compressed if a large file please) to: elaine [at] investingwomen [dot] co [dot] uk.
We are a small team and receive a high volume of approaches but we aim to get back to you as soon as possible.
A tip: don’t overload investors with lengthy documents; you need to be very concise at this first stage. Your full, detailed business plan comes later.
Our group has sectoral and functional expertise, access to additional investors through other angel groups, and many contacts and strategic partners who could potentially help your venture.
