Manchester businesses are being offered an unprecedented opportunity, at a September event (and monthly thereafter), to pitch to a number of angel investors for funding to grow their companies.

Our angelgroups-Manchester initiative will provide an exclusive opportunity for high‐growth businesses to pitch to angel investors for funding, with those who successfully impress potentially securing angel investment and mentoring/support.

We’re delighted to be bringing this opportunity to Manchester, which has consistently been a city of pioneering ideas ‐ now it’s time angel investors heard some of them.

Here at angelgroups, we look for businesses from any sector and at any stage of their development. Our online platform provides an opportunity for businesses to showcase their aspirations, and we also run monthly pitching sessions for 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.

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 North-West-based, high-growth business.

The ongoing pitching sessions will be run in conjunction with our local partners Weightmans, BDO and the private bank Brown Shipley. Those businesses interested are invited to apply online at
