HBAN (Halo Business Angel Network), the all-island organisation responsible for the promotion of business angel investment, and a joint initiative of Enterprise Ireland, InterTradeIreland and Invest Northern Ireland, will be hosting its annual Conference virtually on the afternoon of Thursday 11th February 2021. The three-hour event will stream live online from 2-5pm. 

The annual event is geared towards encouraging wider involvement in business angel investing across the island of Ireland, showcasing the litany of investment opportunities and associated benefits to prospective investors. Ireland’s angel investment community continues to go from strength to strength, providing fertile ground for start-ups to thrive with access to early-stage funding from individual angel investors and syndicates. HBAN members have now invested more than €118M in start-ups across the island of Ireland since 2007.

Over the past number of years, the annual Conference has attracted hundreds of angel investors, bringing together some of the world’s most influential start-up visionaries. In this year’s virtual setting, the conference will focus on the overarching theme of ‘Start – Grow – Exit – Repeat’ – charting the angel investor journey and assessing the inroads being made in the space from a technological standpoint.

The Conference is expected to attract 300+ attendees, who will gain a firm understanding of the investment landscape in high-potential start-ups in 2021, and the opportunity to broaden their network with hundreds of like-minded angel investors.

The HBAN Conference 2021 will feature contributions from Charles Fred, Co-founder of TrueSpace, a business ecosystem designed to help entrepreneurs scale to the middle market; Bill Liao, general partner in SOSV and co-founder of the CoderDojo movement; Colin Mason, Professor of Entrepreneurship at University of Glasgow; and Alan Coleman, CEO of Sweepr, the provider of simple care for the connected home.

As an aside to the bespoke presentations, there will be breakout sessions giving attendees the opportunity to explore topics such as – Artificial Intelligence, Impact investing, Remote Working, AR/VR, and Transportation – and discuss these strands as they pertain to the angel investor space and early-stage technology companies.
