The Angel CoFund makes equity investments of between £100,000 and £1 million in smaller businesses in the UK. It invests alongside syndicates of business angels to support businesses with strong growth potential. Through these equity investments the Angel CoFund also acts as a catalyst to better practice and increased long-term capital in the UK angel market, and as a stepping stone to wider and later-stage venture capital (supported by our Enterprise Capital Funds and VC Catalyst Fund programmes). Investment is subject to an upper limit of 49% of an investment round and 30% of the equity in a business, although investments are usually less than this.

Businesses seeking investment should first secure the interest of a business angel syndicate or network, as you cannot approach this fund directly. Businesses can find more information on business angels, syndicates and networks from the UK Business Angels Association.
