Angels Den (London) - Tech Club
The Tech Club is made up of a group of investors who invest in and grow software companies that have a minimum viable product and massive growth potential. It is a co-investment club that gives Angels the opportunity to invest relatively smaller amounts across a larger number of opportunities and diversify their portfolios. It aims to bring together the most innovative technology start-ups with Angels who have the desire to invest, and the experience to add value. The investments are focused on EIS eligible software companies who have a minimum viable product and early traction (either customers or revenue) who are raising between £100,000 - £1,000,000.
CW is a leading and vibrant community with a rapidly expanding network of nearly 400 companies across the globe interested in the development and application of wireless and mobile technologies to solve business problems. CW connects those companies and stimulates collaborative innovation through a range of thought-provoking high-profile networking events. In addition to these high profile VIP networking activities, we run 19 Special Interest Groups (SIGs), each focussed on a specific technology and/or business area.
