NorthInvest, the angel investor platform that supports and mentors businesses in the North of England, has been recognised as ‘one to watch’ at the UK Business Angel Investment Awards 2017.
Founded in 2015 by aql CEO, Dr Adam Beaumont, NorthInvest is a not-for-profit platform owned by its angel investor members. It was formed to address a gap in the funding ecosystem to provide easier access to mentorship and seed funding for start-up companies.
Shortlisted in the competitive Best New Entrant to the Angel Ecosystem category, NorthInvest won the ‘one to watch’ award, with UKBBA judges recognising NorthInvest’s drive to unlock new sources of funding for entrepreneurs. The ceremony was held at the Dorchester, Mayfair, London on 6 July and was hosted by entrepreneur and UNICEF ambassador Emma Sinclair MBE.
