With only 38% of investments happening outside of London despite the city only hosting 19% of SME businesses, the regions and nations tracker by the British Business Bank shows that external finance for small businesses is still not evenly spread across the UK. 

UK Business Angels Association is hosting four online events in partnership with the British Business Bank to highlight why supporting a thriving, high-growth ecosystem in your local area is so important and how you too can get involved.

The sessions, scheduled between 8 and 16 March, will focus on the Midlands, Yorkshire and the north east, the south east and Wales, and will:

  • cover how angel investing works and its importance in an effective start-up community
  • cover what funding options are available for early-stage businesses in your local area
  • hear from some successful investors in the region who will share their experience of investing in early-stage businesses.
