Anglia Capital Group Support Over £46 Million Worth of Investment Over The Last Six Years
Updated: Jan 23
Over the last 6 years, ACG’s Angel Investors have participated in investment rounds totalling over £46million, all of which has gone into supporting the growth and success of our 41 portfolio companies.
Our region is a hotbed of innovation and there are an impressive array of start-ups brimming with ideas and passion who are looking for support to take their fledgling businesses to the next level. Anglia Capital Group find and select the best start-ups to pitch to their diverse membership group of Angel Investors.
“Start-ups, investing, innovation; many people associate the exciting world of Angel investing and start-ups with London. However, there are lots of interesting opportunities for investors to be involved in high-growth, innovative companies right here in Norfolk and Suffolk” Hannah Smith, Managing Director, Anglia Capital Group.
ACG always welcomes new investors to the group and with our new online platform and events, investors don’t necessarily have to be in the region all the time. It is becoming increasingly common for part-time residents in the region to join the group.
“The pitching events are exciting because there is such a diverse array of entrepreneurs and start-ups looking for investment. We see pitches from a range of different sectors; from clean-tech, med-tech digital and consumer. Of course, it’s always great to get together with other investors in the region to share ideas and talk about the pitches so I’m delighted to see that in-person pitching events are starting to come back. Being an Angel Investor allows me to support growth in the local economy and it is hugely satisfying to see an early-stage business flourish into a successful organisation.” Anglia Capital Group Member.
Anglia Capital Group is proud to say it has only had three failures to date in a 50-company portfolio which is testament to our robust screening process.
At Anglia Capital Group we welcome Angels from a variety of backgrounds with experience in a range of sectors. The more diverse the group the better because businesses need a range of different approaches and experience to help them succeed. We would dearly love to see more female investors coming on board. We’re delighted to be seeing many more female founders bringing their businesses to use to seek funding so it would be great to increase our female Angel engagement as well.
