A practical, highly interactive workshop with Investing Women. Meet and talk with business angels, get tips on what makes your business attractive to investors, the process involved and what to prepare. This is a very flexible day where we discuss your business and business model, how the company can be scaled and other financing options which may be worth exploring. You will have many opportunities to ask questions, meet other entrepreneurs and get help with your pitch.
Following on from our Day with the Angels, use what you have learned at our Pitch Practise session (Day 2) and pitch to an experienced Business Angel who will help you understand what a Business Angel wants to hear from you, analyse your pitch and give you brief coaching to help you optimise your chances of investment. You will only need to allocate a short time for this. Each pitch session will last for 45 minutes during which you will deliver your 5 minute pitch. Your time slot will be agreed with you nearer the time.
Pitch Practise sessions offer free advice, hints and tips - an opportunity not to be missed.
Investing Women would like to thank the Scottish Government for their support for entrepreneurs participating in A Day with the Angels and Pitch Practice as part of their Scotland CanDo initiative.
When & Where
Investing Women Angels Limited
Investing Women is a growing community of women angel investors; women entrepreneurs seeking growth and those who want to help both. We are more than an angel group; and are driven by more than the money.
Scotland has one of the most active business angel communities globally and the UK has the best tax environment for angel investment there has ever been.
But, despite women holding 46% of UK wealth; at best only 5% of Scotland’s angel investors are female.
It’s time for change. Scotland’s businesses and economy need new investment for growth. Investing Women is leading change to help more women into this space.
We know there are too few women angels in Scotland and too few women entrepreneurs accessing angel investment. Evidence from the US shows that building awareness and knowledge is core to changing this; hence our focus on workshops like A Day with the Angels and many other events. In the USA 25% of investors are female; bringing their talent , knowledge and expertise as well as their capital. We need to aspire first to achieve the same targets here in Scotland and, ultimately, equal numbers of male and female investors.
