The North East Angel Fund has £1m to invest in 2016 to support the growth of innovative products and services in businesses across the North East of England.
A specialist early-stage seed fund for small businesses in the region, the Fund can typically invest between £50,000 and £150,000 in any one funding round. It can invest initially on its own but seeks to involve private investors whenever appropriate.
Recognised as the flexible fund for growing innovation, it offers a tailored investment solution, whether it be pure equity, pure loan, or anything in-between, to best suit the needs of the business. This flexibility is very attractive and allows a large breadth of early stage and established companies in a variety of different sectors and stages to apply to the Fund.
With a strong commitment to stimulating new business and developing the North East’s economy, the Fund’s portfolio has successfully created and safeguarded over 600 jobs in the region.
As managers of the Fund, Rivers Capital strive to take the entrepreneurs position. We know that the ‘next big thing’ can have the smallest beginnings. Our experiences as entrepreneurs mean we do things differently. Like you, we are interested in your success.
