Over the past two years, Green Angel Syndicate members have invested in 17 young and ambitious companies developing ground-breaking solutions to tackle global warming.

Our 28th November pitch event at Browns Covent Garden in London broke another record in terms of attendance, and our eager audience of angel investors was treated with five high quality pitches from five ambitious companies in five very different areas of the green economy.
Our 26th September pitch event at Urban Innovation Centre in Clerkenwell, London, was packed with more than 90 attendees and a fantastic line-up of five companies. The companies represented very different sectors, from buildings to industry to electric vehicles to online second-hand shopping. However, all of them had not only a very strong investment case but also a very clear contribution to make to solving the climate crisis – so all were perfectly aligned with Green Angel Syndicate’s objectives:
I am pleased to introduce both myself, Hugh Bartlett, and Young GAS, which I will be running. Young GAS is the second introduction, launched at the Pitch Event on Tuesday, designed to broaden and diversify the range of voices within GAS.
