A Day with the Angels (Day 1) is a practical, highly interactive workshop with Investing Women. Meet and talk with business angels, get tips on being investor ready, how to structure your proposition, ask any questions you like, meet other entrepreneurs and get help with your pitch. Participants are also invited free of charge to participate in our pitch practice day the following day.
Following on from our Day with the Angels, use what you have learned at our Pitch Practise day (Day 2) and pitch to our experienced Business Angels who will help you understand what a Business Angel wants to hear from you, analyse your pitch and give you coaching to help you maximise your chances of investment. You will only need to allocate a short time for this on Day 2. Each pitch will be allocated a 45 minute time slot which you will be notified of nearer the time
Pitch Practise is a day for 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.
