“The business has received strong investment support from Angels 5k members over several years and there is a Club member on our Board. We have found it a simple and efficient process, especially as shares are held by a nominee company and communications are channeled through just two points of contact, one for discussions about the business and one for administrative matters.” Christopher Clark, Managing Director, OwnFone Limited
“As the chairman of Yamgo, I have been delighted with the involvement of Angels 5K. Its members have invested in our business through a number of funding rounds and continue to take an active interest in the success of our business, including visiting our offices in Swansea.
We are a technology business operating in the mobile sector, so having a good understanding of what we do is not easy for non industry specialists. But the breadth of knowledge provided by the various backgrounds of Angel 5K members has meant there exists a base for the productive exchange of information.
“Given the current risk adverse attitude of banks and the size needed to attract the attention of VCs, the Angels 5K group fill a funding gap in the market very successfully.” John Quinn, Chairman, Yamgo Ltd

“For us it’s been a gratifying dual investment from Angels 5K: money and wisdom!” Dr John Hart, Chairman & CEO, Endocrine Pharmaceuticals Ltd
