The Business Angel market in the UK has raised over 1,000 million in investment for tech startups in just nine months, the number of exits is 5 times larger than Spain and it has an extensive network of organized investors now facing Europe to allocate part of their funds.

IE Business School has teamed up with Finanziaconnect that is determined to strengthen ties with the UK investment community and invites IE Spanish startups to participate in the evaluation process for FINANZIACONNECT INVESTMENT FORUM to be held on Thursday, 3rd March in London.

The Top 60 Speed Jury at Area 31 on Wednesday, December 2 will be the first evaluation event with 60 Spanish startups aiming to be one of the 10 chosen to present to UK investors at Google Campus London in March. Startups led by IE Business School students and alumni have a fast-track with 6 places guaranteed in the Top 60 Speed Jury.

You can start the evaluation process here.

Connecting the Business Angels of Spain with their UK counterparts, through co-investment in Spanish Startups is essential so that they can compete on a global stage with startups coming out of Silicon Valley or New York. That’s why FINANZIACONNECT was founded, an initiative led by Finanziapyme which will focus on facilitating initially on promoting investment of UK Business Angels in Spanish startups.

FINANZIACONNECT and bonds with UK investors, will allow Spanish startups to have:

  • Access to the largest Business Angel market in Europe.
  • The opportunity of increasing investment by UK Business Angels beyond their borders.
  • A natural link to British, US and other English speaking markets.
  • Increased access to possible exits. Higher returns for investors.
  • Increased international network of contacts and complementary expertise.
  • Better positioned to be a Global Startup.

This ambitious trans-European initiative will begin with the first FINANZIACONNECT INVESTMENT FORUM to be held in London in March 2016. This investment forum will present the 10 best Startups as a result of a thorough evaluation and selection process along the next two months.

IE Business School, always in favor of global entrepreneurship, participates in Finanziaconnect to help startups led by students and alumni to connect with the largest hub of entrepreneurship in Europe.
