Yorkshire Association of Business Angels (YABA) is an introduction service that puts private equity investors looking to invest in start-up, growth stage and turnaround opportunities, in touch with entrepreneurs and companies seeking finance.
Following nineteen successful years of supporting business angels and entrepreneurs in Yorkshire, YABA has made significant improvements to its membership packages and expanded its geographic outreach to include the whole of the north of England.
Business angels provide a vital source of funding to fill the equity gap in the high risk, early stages of business. They may invest sums of up to £300,000 but more usually keep within a range of £10,000 to £100,000. In some cases, a group of business angels may come together in a syndicate, particularly in cases where a large amount of finance is sought. Importantly, angels are able to offer a wealth of business expertise and advice.
The Association runs a full schedule of events throughout the year. These include regular Investor Meetings at which entrepreneurs introduce their business opportunities, and Master classes & seminars for angel members on topics relating to private equity investment.
