Angel Investment Network

Angel Investment Network's (AIN) is a marketplace that enables entrepreneurs to showcase their businesses, while registered Angel investors browse the platform to seek investment opportunities.

We were founded in 2004 and have since raised over £300 million for some of the coolest startups in the UK and across the world.

Our platform has 30 branches extending to over 80 countries. It has 947,273 registered members with 169,357 investors and 773,491 entrepreneurs. As such, it is the largest angel investment community in the world, and growing daily.

We’ve tried to never lose touch with our entrepreneurial roots. So, we are always looking for the next problem to solve. In April 2018, we launched BrickTribe – a platform specifically connecting property developers with investors.

In January 2018, we launched SeedTribe – our angel-led crowdfunding platform. Investors can now invest from as little as £1000 with all the legal work done for them. The companies listed are vetted by our team and have an existing lead angel investor.

Moreover, SeedTribe has been created to encourage and enable investors to support businesses whose mission is to address social or environmental challenges. SeedTribe is profit-driven and its success is therefore dependent on the funding impactful businesses. Our profits are inextricably tied to the businesses we fund and their success in, for example, reducing or mitigating environmental damage and/or solving society-wide problems such as increased inequality or social exclusion. 

Our mission remains to help as many entrepreneurs as possible connect with great investors and realise their ambitions.
