Women across the regions of the Northern Powerhouse are urged to take part in the Women Angels of the North Investment Forum on November 12.
Organised by UK Business Angels Association in partnership with County Durham-based fintech firm Growth Capital Ventures and Leeds based NorthInvest, this event seeks to raise awareness among experienced businesswomen of the opportunities to back great entrepreneurs.
It is being held in the elegant Art Deco surroundings of the Queen’s Hotel in central Leeds.
Currently women angel investors make up a small proportion of the angel investment market, and UKBAA's recent research showed that many women are unaware of the opportunity to use their spare finance and business experience to invest in growing small businesses.
Jordan Dargue is group operations director for Growth Capital Ventures. She has helped organise the forum and will be on the panel sharing experiences and answering questions.
This half-day event will offer opportunities to share the experiences of women business angels. Delegates will also get tips and advice, hear case studies of successful investments, gain expert information on the angel investing process, join in interactive debates and enjoy networking.
Spaces for this event are limited, so please register your place now on the website.
