Members of Henley Business Angels are looking to invest in new and early-stage, high-growth businesses whose founders are seeking £50,000 to £500,000 to accelerate the growth of their business.
Henley Business Angels operates with a Thames Valley focus, investing in start-ups and early-stage businesses based in the region. As a network, HBA is also particularly interested in investing in clean/green tech, life-science, biomedical, new technologies such as robotics, and SaaS businesses. However, all businesses are encouraged to apply, provided you meet our network’s investment criteria.
We host four company presentations Events throughout the year, providing the opportunity for carefully pre-selected founders to pitch to the Henley Business Angels network. As part of the Presentations Event, founders and investors are invited to discuss the business and potential investment further at our private showcase.
Membership is by application. Persons applying should have or wish to have a connection with the University of Reading and Henley Business School and will actively contribute to our process. To learn more, including how to apply to become a HBA member, please read our section for investors.
The Henley Business Angels network is guided and overseen by the Board of HBA Ltd, a company limited by guarantee and managed from day-to-day by an Executive Committee of members. Support is provided by the Dean’s Office of Henley Business School, and the network is spearheaded by Jurek Sikorski, HBA Founder and Director, and Gareth Hawkins, HBA Delivery Lead.
