The Truth about Business Angels


Mitigating your Risk
The economic impact of Business Angels...
The future of Angel Investment 2040 

Paulo Andrez, Investor, Entrepreneur and President Emeritus, EBAN, will discuss Risk Mitigation and how Business Angels can help entrepreneurs to reduce risk in their start-ups. Risk management is all about understanding risks that can impact your objectives, and implementing strategies to mitigate and manage those risks. 

He will also look at the economic impact of Business Angels - Since inception, in 2007, the Business Angel Partnership (BAP), has continued to grow, closing 156 deals and raising over €71.8 million in investment for Entrepreneurs across all sectors with a rapidly increasing component of cross border and international business angel seed capital investment. CorkBIC has done 67 deals raising €23.17m and the business grows each year.

The Future of Angel Investment 2040 - Business angel investing – a key source of finance for entrepreneurial businesses – is evolving from individuals investing on their own to one that is increasingly characterised by groups of investors investing together through managed angel syndicates. How does the future look?
