Business angel networks allow business angels to meet, discuss and invest in early-stage startups. They are generally run by a sort of 'gate keeper' who sifts through investment opportunities to pick our those they think best suited for their investors.

In the UK there's a wide range of business angel networks. While some specialise in opportunities by industry or region, others invest across both so long as the company's business plan is sound.

Below, you'll find a list of the angel networks operating within the UK. Click on any one to obtain further information on the network and its angel investors, what they invest in, how much they tend to invest and, of course, how to get in touch.
