Angel Academe is an award-winning angel network.
Most (BUT NOT ALL) of our angel investors are women and we back ambitious tech startups with at least one woman on the founding team.
We're helping more women enjoy the benefits of angel investing and, at the same time, helping the best UK tech startups access the capital and “smarts” women bring. We believe that diverse investor and startup teams make better decisions, are more capital efficient and give better return on investment.
Both experienced and budding angel investors are welcome at our events as well as men who want to be part of a diverse angel network. We want to become (even) better investors by sharing our experience and investing together in a fun and collaborative environment.
Our angels are successful and entrepreneurial women (and men) and we support ambitious women-founded and led technology businesses. We believe that to help more women “go big”, we need to increase the number of women investors.
We run quarterly pitch events where angels hear pitches from 4 startups that have come through our screening process. We also run Entrepreneur Academe which is a mentoring programme for women tech founders.
Our mentors help and advise the companies who participate in the Entrepreneur Academe programme. Our mentors are experienced entrepreneurs as well as angel and institutional investors.

"I was very pleased to be allowed to join your meeting last week as it answered a lot of the questions I have had around this type of investing and the members and speakers reassured me that I was amongst people who were not risk junkies but thoughtful investors."
