WINNERS & SHORTLIST

UKBAA is delighted to announce the winners for the 2016 UKBAA Angel Investment Awards

“2016 has really pushed the boundaries for the Annual Angel Investment Awards. This year’s shortlist highlights over 80 high growth companies backed by over 1,000 angel investors who have identified the opportunity to invest in these innovating entrepreneurs. We have been delighted to see that these investors include some of the UK’s leading names from industry, finance and commerce”  – Jenny Tooth OBE, CEO of UKBAA

The Awards recognise not only angel investment, but the importance of other finance sources, including equity crowdfunding, VCs, grants and loans that combine with angels to support the pathway from startup to scale-up.
