About Us

The Angels4Angels team

The Directors of Angels4Angels Limited act as Operating Partners on behalf of Investor Syndicates.

Each Angels4Angels Director has a record of significant and relevant business success, considerable experience as a Business Investor and the means to invest material sums on the same initial terms as their investor clients.

As fees are not charged to investors, Angels4Angels Directors are rewarded, only for success, when an investment is finally realised. In the form of an option to acquire shares at the entry price, and declared at the outset, Angels4Angels Directors incentives are entirely aligned with investors.
