Angels in MedCity is a partnership between MedCity, London Business Angels and Angels4LifeSciences. The programme aims to introduce new and existing business angels to investment opportunities from healthcare and life science companies.
MedCity is a collaboration between the Mayor of London and the Capital’s three Academic Health Science Centres – Imperial College Academic Health Science Centre, King’s Health Partners and UCL Partners. MedCity works with the life sciences sector with the aim to position London and the greater south east of England as a world leading, interconnected region for life sciences research, development, manufacturing and commercialisation over the next 20 years.
London Business Angels
London Business Angels is one of the oldest, most respected and successful Business Angel Investment Networks in the UK and indeed Europe. Since 1982 we have been connecting high growth small and medium sized enterprises with investment through our network of experienced and discerning business angel investors. Through its investment activities and continuous success in helping young innovative companies secure growth capital, London Business Angels has been recognized as the most active angel network in the UK (UK Equity Investment Review H1 2014, Beauhurst). London Business Angels is a founding member of the UK Business Angels Association, the industry's best practice trade association. LBA is also a member of EBAN, the European Business Angels Network.
Angels4LifeSciences (A4LS) was established in 2012 to help overcome the perceived challenges of investing in early-stage life sciences companies. A4LS is a not-for-profit nationwide network that provides angels with the opportunity to assess life science businesses that have already been selected by industry experts, and that have been the endorsement that comes from having already secured a cornerstone investor and an experienced business mentor. The objective of A4LS is to provide a means of communication between private investors and companies seeking investment capital in the small, high growth potential business sector. A4LS operates as an information service, providing a platform for investors seeking equity investment opportunities, to meet entrepreneurs and companies seeking investment, and enabling investors to receive information on investment opportunities of interest to them.
