We are delighted to invite you to the next Halo Business Angel Network's (HBAN) London Syndicate event on June 13th at 17.30 in Rocketspace, 40 Islington High St, Angel, London.

HBAN is the All- Island umbrella organisation for Angel investing in Ireland, with over 400 deals closed, over €85m invested and over 700 active angels. In Ireland we have twelve syndicates (Tech, Medtech, Food) and we have recently set up successful HBAN Syndicates, with an Irish Affinity, in New York and Singapore.

Annually HBAN present 100 plus qualified deals to the Network and close out between 40 and 50 in any one year. The average angel investment in a deal a €285k, however, due to the syndicated nature of the deals 60% of individuals invest less than €50k per deal, with 30% less than €25k.In our first year with New York and Singapore we closed out 4 and 2 deals respectively and we are aiming to close out 3 to 5 deals with each annually.

For our London Syndicate we are aiming for similar, or higher, and pulling together a group of likeminded individuals seeking qualified deal flow from the island of Ireland and looking to co-invest alongside a local Irish lead investor, with due diligence documents available and a UK focus.

We hosted our inaugural event on March 21st where we had a great response and feedback with 3 of the companies being considered for investment and having onboarded 10 members to the group

On June 13th, we will have 4 companies presenting on the evening who have already raised money or are in the process of fundraising from HBAN angels in Ireland. Furthermore, we will insights and discussion from the Chair of London Syndicate Harry Mc Dermott, National Director of HBAN John Phelan and Laura Lynch of Laura Lynch & Associates who has provided strategic tax and business advice to the HBAN MedTech Syndicate since its inception and now plays a critical role in bringing the groups deals to completion
