The EBAN Congress was, as well as many other things, the stage for the launch of the Startup Investors Manifesto which called up for the early stage investment community to support a series of actions and policies aimed at increasing European early stage investment to 15 billion Euros and creating 1,5 million new jobs by 2017.
The 9th annual EBAN awards ceremony took place in evening of the first day and recognised European business angel federations, networks and investors who have demonstrated excellence and commitment to driving business angel investment over the last year. The distinguished "winners" include:
The 14th annual European Business Angel Congress commenced in Dublin Castle yesterday. The conference is hosted by HBAN, the all-island umbrella group responsible for stimulating angel investment.

HBAN, the all-island umbrella group responsible for stimulating angel investment, is today announcing that it will be the official host for the 14th EBAN Congress in 2014, bringing the European business angel community to Dublin. It is Europe’s largest angel event and the second biggest in the world.
Ireland is probably the leading country when it comes to Angel Syndication. HBAN has extensive knowledge and experience in this topic and during this webinar Michael Culligan shares with us how angel syndicates:

b) empowers angel investors to build and maintain a portfolio of investments, and
c) streamlines the funding process for the entrepreneur.
