Founded in 2013, Green Angel Syndicate operates from Edinburgh and London and provides investors and entrepreneurs with the opportunity to grow innovative technology businesses.
Green Angel Syndicate has made seven investments to date to a total sum of over £3.5 million.
Of the seven companies in the portfolio, one company is already assessing offers prior to a partial or total sale, which will mean a first exit. This is expected to be at a significant multiple, providing investors with a healthy return.
We expect two of the most recent investments to move towards a Series A Round this year, each with a strong uplift in value.
Two are maintaining progress against plan, whilst two are experiencing some challenges.
Investment holding period is expected to be an average 3-4 years, with the advantage of EIS or SEIS relief.
Green Angel Syndicate was created to make investments in early stage technology and process innovations in the Green Economy. The syndicate invests in early stage companies seeking to improve the way we use resources - energy, water and the wider transition to a greener economy - sustainable transport, smart cities.
The deal pipeline is strong, with a combination of new investments and follow-on investment in existing companies. Green Angel Syndicate has developed a strong brand name in the market and the team expects to see 80-90% of companies seeking angel investment in the Cleantech sector in the UK.
Its membership of industry bodies, presence at key conferences and events throughout the UK and the network of its founders and members has given it a visible profile in the UK early-stage investment landscape well beyond its size.
Our TeamFounders Nick Lyth and Andrew Aldridge are frequently invited to comment as industry experts.
The syndicate currently has almost 50 members, with new members joining each week. Green Angel Syndicate brings to the process a group of people whose track record in previous roles has brought a consistently impressive return on investment.
