Approaching Investing Women Angels for investment

Investing Women are now inviting founders to apply for investment on our dedicated application portal Dealum. This is an essential first step to be considered for investment from our group. For more details on our application criteria and process please see here.
At Investing Women, we are passionate about founders who want to scale their business. Our business Angels have a wealth of experience across a variety of sectors; many of whom are or have run their own business, so we understand the excitement and the challenges that you will be facing.

Our preference is to invest in Scottish-based companies and we are particularly interested in companies with one or more female founder. Our usual investment range is between £50k and £250k, but we frequently participate in considerably larger investments alongside other angel groups and a lead investor.

We receive a high volume of approaches, so please make sure you have read the application process and further information for successful forwarding to our screening group.

Our Investing Women Angel Group meets six times throughout the year. Our 2021 pitch meeting dates are:

9 September
18 November


We are particularly keen to hear from businesses that have:

An innovative technology or business model

A founding team rather than an individual

Validation of the product and/or business model

A clear understanding of the route to market for the product

A business that it scalable beyond the Scottish or UK marketplace

An indication of either SEIS or EIS status.

Our screening group will review all applications and we will contact you to let you know if you have been successful or if we require more information.

Please note, in line with most angel groups, we charge founders a 5% admin fee on any investment successfully raised from our group.

Focused on building women’s involvement in investing, we provide the knowledge, education and community to support existing and potential female angels and help them on their investment journey.
