Archangels - Making The Future


Companies seeking investment from Archangels should contact our Investment Executive team to outline their business proposal and investment needs.  Assuming that the basic Investment Criteria are met, then a business plan should be submitted to Archangels for review. This should include an overview of the company together with a brief financial summary outlining how much funding is being sought and how it will be used.

The Decision Process as to whether or not the syndicate wishes to progress an investment is designed to be as quick and helpful as possible.  However, companies should be aware that Archangels will review over 100 proposals in any one year and will probably invest in around 2-3 (a normal investment profile).

Our Investment Philosophy reflects a patient approach to building good companies on solid foundations.  We provide significant business experience as well as money and will continue to support good companies with follow-on rounds where appropriate.  We have experience and skills at achieving sensible exits at the right time for both founders and investors.
