Our service

Supported by GC Business Finance, GC Business Growth Hub and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), our service bridges the gap between private and public capital and highly innovative businesses seeking investment across the North West.

As an associate Angel, you gain access to live opportunities via our member’s login area from a range of industry sectors and at varying stages of development - each with their unique product or competitive advantage.

Contribute more than just your capital; your sector expertise, market knowledge and contacts could help drive a business to achieve the next stage in its development much more rapidly and increase the value of your investment in the process.

How to register

It’s quick and easy to join our network of investors. Simply complete the registration form and one of our Investment Directors will view and approve your application.

Financial regulation of business angel investment in the UK allows HNWIs to invest in small businesses and in turn gives businesses the chance to reach investors more easily. This is on the basis of reasonable belief that the investor is a self-certified High Net Worth Individual or a self-certified Sophisticated Investor.

To comply with financial services legislation and to ensure commercial confidentiality, you will need to register online as part of the sign-up process and self-certify as a sophisticated investor or High Net Worth Individual (HNWI).

All investments should be carefully considered, and capital is at risk.
