This event is aimed at women in business and the professions across the Northern Powerhouse regions to enable them to find out more about the opportunity to be an angel investor and support great entrepreneurs in the local economy.
Currently women only make up a very small proportion of the angel investment community. Recent research has shown that this is due to the fact that many women feel that they don’t have enough information or knowledge about angel investing, assuming it’s too complicated or risky. At the same time there are many growth-focused entrepreneurs that could benefit from the advice and backing of women investors.
This free to attend event, organised by UK Business Angels Association in partnership with NorthInvest and Growth Capital Ventures is designed to help bust the myths about angel investing for women.
Through interactive panels, guest speakers, technical experts and case studies you will gain insights from women who have already been angel investing who will speak about their own backgrounds and approach to investment and learn about the process and how to avoid the risks.
This forum is supported by Innovate UK, as part of its work on diversity and supporting innovating women to access the investment they need to achieve their growth ambitions.
The Women Angels of the North Investment Forum will be held in the elegant art decor setting of The Queens Hotel, a few minutes from Leeds central station Leeds and with ample parking nearby. There will be excellent opportunities for networking, making new contacts and sharing experience with refreshments being served and the opportunity for further networking during the drinks reception following the forum.
