Green Angel Syndicate welcomes approaches for equity funding from entrepreneurs running companies which benefit the green economy.

Check here to see if you fit our investment criteria and, if you think you do, please email your business plan to Nick Lyth or Simon Acland.

Criteria

Our Role

We are regarded as an authoritative co-investor because of our sector focus and experience. We therefore want to use this focus and experience to make a useful contribution to the companies we back, usually in a NED role.

Our Process

Our process starts when you contact our Management Team or Simon Acland. If they approve your proposal, they will then put it to our Advisory Group, which is made up of our cornerstone investors.

If the Advisory Group approve it, an invitation will be issued to present at one of our bi-monthly pitch events. These are usually held in London and will be recorded and made available to our members via our web platform.

Once you have pitched, we aim to communicate a decision as early as possible in the process to avoid wasting your time.

Our Fees

To cover the costs of our pitch events and managing the syndicate’s investments, we charge companies a fee of £1,000 for presenting at our pitch events and 5% of the amounts invested by our members (in cash and as an option). We normally seek an annual management fee of 2% of the amounts invested up to a cap of £6,000 to cover the costs of adding value post-investment.

We aim to keep professional fees associated with the investment process to a minimum, but will pass these on at cost if they are incurred, with agreement on both sides beforehand.
