Early stage investing in United Kingdom today:

  • Probably one of the most developed angel scenes across Europe after the US
  • Existed for over 30 years
  • A fantastically supportive environment for angel investing
  • Long-term tax break which gives angels between 30 and 50% of a tax break, plus a 100 milion coinvestment fund

My goals in United Kingdom

  • More women angel investors
