Why angel investing?

You might think it is just to make money, but for many of us, it is a way to give back to the community, to help build successful companies and to get the satisfaction that comes from this involvement.

And angels hope to get a return as well.

Why do this as a group?

There are a number of good reasons. Here are a few to begin with:

Deal flow – in a network one gets access to a larger pool of pre‐screened investment opportunities. Due to leveraged know-how, an angel group has a better judgement capability. Syndication also makes conducting the due diligence faster and less expensive.

Individual bets are small. As a group you can lower your personal investment risk and diversify your portfolio.

Standardized process and term sheet – makes it easier for both the investor and entrepreneur.

EstBAN connects and educates business angels to increase investment quality, thereby helping innovative startups grow.

Who are we?

We are a group of entrepreneurs, CEOs, venture capitalists and business leaders who have founded, funded and built a number of companies. Some of these are highly successful, others less.

We serve on their boards, provide contacts and assist with team building, strategic planning and fundraising.
We lead deals ranging from EUR 20 000 – EUR 500 000. Individual tickets usually start from EUR 5 000.
