UK Business Angels Association awardsLocate Isle of Man will be attending this year’s UK Business Angels Association awards
Locate Isle of Man will be attending this year's UK Business Angles Association which celebrates high growth and success in the angel and early-stage investment market – recognising the fastest growing brands and acknowledging the founders, angels, crowd funders and early-stage venture capital investors behind them.
The Isle of Man has been active for many years in working with Business Angels and other providers of 'alternative' or 'complementary' finance in supporting SME's to grow. The Island's £50million Enterprise Development Scheme has been an important step in assisting businesses who are seeking investment to enter the next growth phase and with the formation of the not for profit Business Angel network 'Bridge', complements the on-going support.
The call is out from UKBAA to find this year's most innovative growth businesses and the investors that have backed them as nominations are open for the 2018 UK Angel Investment Awards. With 14 awards to play for this year, UKBAA welcomes nominations from and on behalf of high-growth companies that have received early-stage finance in the past 18 months – and from the investors, groups, platforms and organisations that back them.
Winners will be announced at the inaugural awards ceremony and gala dinner on 19th June in Liverpool, with over 400 key players from across the investment community gathering to celebrate success across the industry.
So if you have invested in, founded or know of a company that is going great guns and deserves recognition - or of an organisation that's bringing a positive impact to the early-stage investment community, nominate them here.
