The UK Business Angels Association has opened a new angel investment hub in the heart of Cambridge.
The Bradfield Centre is a brand new, purpose-built, collaborative office space in the heart of the world-famous Cambridge Science Park designed to accelerate businesses to new levels.
The aim of the hub is to attract smart, ambitious, like-minded entrepreneurs and investors from both Cambridge and around the world; co-locate them in scalable, state-of-the-art facilities; immerse them in a collaborative, entrepreneurial culture; and connect
them to other investors, partners, mentors, advisers and potential customers.
CEO of the UKBAA Jenny Tooth said: “There is a lack of infrastructure which means that neither angels or entrepreneurs are visible to each other. The presence of funds is not enough as you have to create an environment where entrepreneurs are investment ready.
“Last week we announced the opening of new hubs in Birmingham and Bristol, and…we will formally launch our new Angel Hub in the heart of Cambridge to provide a focal point for angel investors of all levels to connect with each other. We will continue to help entrepreneurs to be investment-ready, how to pitch and present effectively.”
The UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA) is the national trade association for angel and early-stage investment, representing over 160 member organisations and around 18,000 investors.
