We are run by a steering group of experienced advisors, angel investors, and business owners who have great connections within the Central Arc area (Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Luton, Bedfordshire, and Northamptonshire).
We are members of the UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA), all the deals pitched will be on the UKBAA DealShare platform so they are also available to any angel who is a member of UKBAA, increasing the exposure of the entrepreneurs to wider opportunities.
We are not a fund, nor are we FCA authorised and we do not arrange or manage any of the deals nor do we provide any investment advice, we simply facilitate introductions between parties and support the entrepreneurs and angels through online training.
