Humber businesses are being offered an unprecedented opportunity, at a June event, to pitch to a number of angel investors for funding to grow their companies.

The Angel Groups Humber initiative will provide an exclusive opportunity for high‐growth businesses to pitch in front of angel investors for funding, with those who successfully impress potentially securing angel investment.

Martin Avison, Managing Director of Financial Pulse, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing this opportunity to Hull. This has consistently been a city of pioneering ideas ‐ now it’s time angel investors heard some of them.”

Angel Groups look for businesses from any sector and at any stage of their development. The online platform managed by Financial Pulse provides an opportunity for businesses to showcase their aspirations, whilst also offering monthly pitching sessions to those looking for funding. That said, for most businesses seeking angel investment, it’s not just about the money, it’s about the experience the angel can offer.

Mr Avison added:  “Receiving introductions to angel investors can make a significant impact on a business and not just because of the investment. This really is a great opportunity for any Humber-based, high-growth business.”

Angel Groups Events introduce high‐growth SMEs to the funding options available so as to enable them to meet their growth aspirations. Angel Groups Humber is a part of Angel Groups, which is managed by Financial Pulse.
