Open to angel investors that are co-investing as a recognised angel syndicate. This award is looking to spotlight a syndicate that has invested in and had a measurable ‘impact beyond investment’ on an SME.

This award is designed to recognise the vital role angel investing plays in the SME investment ecosystem.  Without knowledgeable syndicates that are prepared to collaborate and share risk, many businesses would struggle to get the investment and support they need at key stages in their growth journey.


Jenny Tooth OBE, CEO of the UK Business Angels Association presenting the Best Angel Syndicate award to Start Up Funding Club at the 2017 Growth Investor Awards
“Angel investing in syndicates has been shown to be the most effective approach to investing in early stage businesses. Angel syndicates are able to pool their finance, skills and knowledge, enabling them to bring extensive added value to their portfolio. This award demonstrates the important role that syndicates play not only in mobilising risk capital, but significantly impacting on the growth potential of the businesses they back”
