Accelerator Directory / Cambridge Angels Ltd.

Business Description

"The Cambridge Angels are a group of high-net worth investors who have proven experience as successful entrepreneurs in internet, software, technology and bio-technology. Members invest in and mentor high quality start-up and early-stage companies in these sectors in the Cambridge (UK) area and throughout the UK.

Typical funding requirements that the Cambridge Angels meet are in the range of £50,000 to £1,000,000 - although it is worth noting that several of our portfolio companies have received more than £1m in funding from our Members over several funding rounds.

Our Members have been responsible for a large number of the “Cambridge Phenomenon” success stories over recent years. Therefore, in addition to providing funding for early-stage companies, the Cambridge Angels also offer start-ups the considerable benefit of a wide range of expertise, contacts and directly relevant experience in establishing and growing entrepreneurial businesses successfully.

Since inception in September 2001, the Cambridge Angels have invested about £20 million in around 40 different portfolio companies.
