Entrepreneurs face an ever expanding range of options when they look for investment, but getting an angel investor on board is a proven way of launching and growing your business. Many start-ups prefer working with angels as they can provide more than just the money - they'll bring valuable experience and contacts to the table too.
For this webchat we'll be joined by angel investor Bill Morrow and Patrick van der Vorst, the founder of online antiques valuation site ValueMyStuff.com.
Morrow founded Angels Den in 2007, determined to create a better and more transparent environment for growth businesses. As an entrepreneur he knew what businesses are looking for and the concept has been hugely successful. Last year Angels Den, which connects angel investors with businesses seeking investment, facilitated 7,200 pitches and has an average of 420 angels visit the site every day.
Patrick van der Vorst walked away from the Dragons' Den with £100,000 investment from Theo Paphitis and Deborah Meaden and he'll be able to talk about what it's really like to work with angels, how he has benefited from having them involved. He will share his tips on how to make the most of the relationship to grow your business.
So if you are considering angel investment for your business or you are just curious to find out how it could benefit your business, get all your questions together and join Bill Morrow and Patrick van der Vorst for what promises to be a fascinating Smarta webchat.
