Angel investing forms an important part of the start-up ecosystem in Ireland. In 2018 HBAN business angels, across the island invested €9.3m into 44 companies. This direct angel investment leveraged a further €27.5M of additional public & private funds into these companies from organisations such as Enterprise Ireland, venture capital companies and founders. Since 2011, HBAN angels invested over €98 million in Irish start-ups. These investments have leveraged a further €167 million from other public and private funds, bringing the total invested to €266 million.
A joint initiative of Enterprise Ireland, InterTradeIreland and Invest Northern Ireland, HBAN’s service includes identifying high-potential start-ups and going through a process of vetting, preparing and confirming these companies as investor-ready. These start-ups then go on to present to potential investors at different HBAN-organised investor forums and syndicate meetings.
The conference is open to non-HBAN members who want to see how the HBAN network works, connect with HBAN angels and listen to pitches from high-potential start-ups. Register your interest now.
