Dorset Business Angels (DBA) have announced the date for their next investors’ pitch event which will take place on Monday 25th September at the Royal Bath Hotel in Bournemouth and is urging potential investors to book a place at the popular event.
DBA was formed in 2013 with the aim of being a catalyst in Dorset to bring together entrepreneurs and investors to help accelerate the growth of start-up businesses. Their vision is to turn Dorset into one of the UK’s best regions for setting up high growth and start-up businesses by providing quality private equity investment opportunities to local high net worth and sophisticated investors.
Four times a year companies are invited to attend an event at which they pitch their business to the savvy Angels in a Dragon’s Den type scenario. Angel investment might come from a single investor or it could be 2 or 3 Angels pooling funds together to support a company. Any investments are in the form of an equity investment and not a debtor’s loan. Investments are made across all sectors.
DBA Chairman Don McQueen advises, “We have four really interesting pitches lined up to present to us, from a diverse mix of sectors including sports, property, travel and wellbeing. We welcome potential investors to come along, network and maybe discover an exciting, new investor proposition!”
