The third edition of EBAN’s (European Business Angel Network) Business Angels Week 2015 breaks another record by featuring 255 events in 28 countries throughout the EMEA region. The Business Angels Week, the world’s largest cross-border angel investment awareness initiative featuring Business Angels and Entrepreneurs from Europe, the Middle East (MBAN) and Africa (ABAN), was launched during the first day of the EBAN Winter University & Creative Business Cup in Copenhagen, Denmark in front of more than 500 Angel Investors and Entrepreneurs.
HBAN, a joint initiative of InterTradeIreland and Enterprise Ireland responsible for the all-island promotion of business angel investment, today announces that it has breached the landmark of €50 million invested by business angels. A further €89 million has been leveraged from other sources including Enterprise Ireland, Western Development Commission and local and international venture capital funds.
