We’re pleased to announce that GC Angels has been recognised as the 13th most active angel network in the UK, according to the data platform, Beauhurst.
The rankings are based on Beauhurst tracking over 2,000 fundraisings into UK businesses between 2011 and 2021. It was recognised that during the ten-year period, GC Angels participated in at least 40 fundraisings into 35 different companies that were tracked through Beahurst.
The findings also show that the majority of active angel networks are largely based in London and Edinburgh, outside of these two markets we would actually rank as the 5th most active which we feel is a real testament to the work we’re doing in Greater Manchester and surrounding areas.
Jessica Jackson, Head of Investment at GC Angels, said:
Our unique co-investment model enables us to turbo-charge rounds. We are delighted to have been recognised in this report for the exemplary work we do nationally supporting early stage and highly innovative startups. Our success also comes without compromising our values, and we are incredibly proud of our market-leading diversity.
[Of rounds GC Angels have invested into, 50% have been female-founded and 23% BME founded.]
