As part of our Highlands roadshow, we look forward to joining the Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Argyll and Bute Council's Business Gateway at Argyll Enterprise Week for a Day with the Angels.
Spend the day with 2 experienced female business angels from Scotland's only all female angel group, Investing Women - http://www.investingwomen.co.uk.
At Investing Women we are passionate about entrepreneurs and keen to help as many women entrepreneurs as possible to think about how they can develop and grow their business. During the day we will work with you to expore the options for growing your business even if you are still at the ideas stage and cover topics like:
- How to structure your business for scalable growth
- How to structure an effective pitch
- Ways to build a team in the early days when money is very limited
- Looking at market opportunities
- Financing growth
- And, if relevant, how angel investment works and what would make your company attractive to investors.
This is a very, informal and relaxed session which will be designed around the needs of those who join us on the day.
Investing Women would like to thank the Scottish Government for their support for entrepreneurs participating in A Day with the Angels as part of their Scotland CanDo initiative. We would also like to thank Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Argyll and Bute Council's Business Gateway for allowing us to be a part of their enterprise week.
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.
