Companies seeking investment from Angels 5K will only be considered for investment where they can demonstrate both a high growth opportunity and a compelling business case. Here are some of the things to consider before applying:
- Are you willing to give up some amount of ownership and control of your company?
- Can you demonstrate that your company will produce a significant return for investors?
- Are you willing to take advice from investors and accept board of director decisions you may not always agree with?
- Do you have an exit plan for your company that may mean you’re not involved in 3 to 5 years’ time?

What Do I Do Next?
To begin your application, either apply directly through the link on our Application page or make contact with a member of Angels 5K to discuss your offer. You will need to supply the following information: details of your product/service, the market opportunity, the business case, the investment required, the deal for the investor and the potential return.
To present your case for investment, your application will need to be supported by, at the very least, an Executive Summary of no more than 2 pages, a Business Plan, a set of Accounts (if available) and a Cash Flow Forecast. Your application will then be assessed by a number of members before being approved for a presentation to a meeting of the full membership.
While we try to respond to every application with helpful feedback, this is not always possible due to the number we receive.
Please note that all submissions will be considered to be in the public domain unless and until we have signed a confidentiality agreement.
