Our Festival is proud to be working with the UK Business Angels Association, the national industry body for Angel and early stage investment.
As our Investment Partner, UKBAA is set to provide investment opportunities throughout the programme and will act as the interface for investor engagement, aiming to match investor exposure to the range of business opportunities available.
This service will include ‘The Pitch’ - A series of business scale-up and showcasing events, on eight of the Festival’s nine days. Each event will involve selected companies seeking investment to scale up their business, by pitching to a panel of investors interested in their sector.
The companies, products and panel members will be directly related to the theme of each day. Opportunities to be part of this will be made available in early 2018. The showcase sessions will be supported by a programme of how-to events on the Knowledge Stage, designed to help entrepreneurs and investors develop their business journey.
UKBAA will engage with investors across the Festival, to ensure that they are aware of key events that match their needs, helping them get the most from their Festival experience. UKBAA will also be presenting an Investment Summit on Tuesday 19 June, providing thought leadership on the latest trends and developments in both the UK and international investment markets.
Their ‘Creating Global Connectivity for Growth’ event will feature major keynote speakers and panellists from across the UK and international investment communities, for an audience of 500 delegates.
