Dorset Business Angels (DBA) have announced the date for their next investors’ pitch event which will take place on Monday 27th November at the Royal Bath Hotel in Bournemouth and is urging potential investors to book a place at the popular event.
DBA Chairman Don McQueen advises, “We have four very diverse pitches lined up to present to us, including a private business club, a premium concierge business, a company at the forefront of the digital advertising revolution and a new web app business targeting corporates and public- sector organisations.
“We welcome potential investors to come along, network and maybe discover an exciting, new investor proposition! Dorset Business Angels is enjoying a great profile in the investor market currently and is attracting pitches from across the South. The feedback that we have received from our recent Angels Investor conference has been brilliant!”
DBA was formed in 2013 with the aim of being a catalyst in Dorset to bring together entrepreneurs and investors to help accelerate the growth of start-up businesses. Their vision is to turn Dorset into one of the UK’s best regions for setting up high growth and start-up businesses by providing quality private equity investment opportunities to local high net worth and sophisticated investors.
Four times a year companies are invited to attend an event at which they pitch their business to the savvy Angels in a Dragon’s Den type scenario. Angel investment might come from a single investor or it could be 2 or 3 Angels pooling funds together to support a company. Any investments are in the form of an equity investment and not a debtor’s loan. Investments are made across all sectors.
