Halo Business Angel Network




The Halo Business Angel Network (HBAN) is a joint initiative between Enterprise Ireland and InterTrade Ireland. HBAN operates on a regional basis, providing a matching service for private investors (Business Angels) and pre-screened investment opportunities in start-up, early stage and developing businesses. CorkBIC manages the HBAN process in the Southwest and Midwest regions of Ireland.


HBAN’s angels invested €14million in 59 companies during 2020, with an average deal size of €250k from angel investors. These funds leveraged a further €40.5m from Enterprise Ireland and other investors. Categories of start-ups that were most commonly invested in included MedTech, ICT & Manufacturing. 

Investors and Syndicates in the South West & Mid West of Ireland (managed by CorkBIC) invested €6 million into emerging companies into the South West & Mid West region of Ireland in 2020 leveraging a further €8.5 million of additional investment funds.

Ireland’s angel investment community provides start-ups with access to early-stage funding from individual angel investors and syndicates. HBAN business angels have now invested more than €118M in start-ups across the island of Ireland since 2007.
