The Anglia Innovation Partnership (AIP) team held the latest Entrepreneur Network meeting in February, with speakers from Anglia Capital Group presenting to the group with tips and tricks for getting angel investment.

As part of the campus-wide enterprise strategy, many early start-ups and potential entrepreneurs have been discovered in the Norwich Research Park community of researchers and businesses. In order to bring these people together to share best practice and learn from their experiences, the entrepreneur network was created, and has been having regular meetings every few months.

For the latest session, Hannah Smith and Laura Hood from Anglia Capital Group spoke about Angel Investment and about the Halo Programme, a programme powered by the leading Business Angel Network in Norfolk and Suffolk designed to prepare early-stage, innovative companies for angel investment. The course goes into detail about every aspect needed before approaching angel investors for growth capital and is delivered by industry experts.

There was also time for the group members to network and discuss their latest progress and learning points, as well as enjoy a lunch prepared by on-site caterers the Genuine Dining Company.

“It was a pleasure to be invited to speak to the NRP Entrepreneur Network. NRP is a hotbed of innovation in exciting sectors such as biotech, food and agritech: sectors that we know are growing and are appealing to angel investors and VCs alike. It was a really engaging session and fantastic to speak to so many NRP entrepreneurs in one room!” Hannah Smith, Managing Director, Anglia Capital Group.

The team will be holding more Entrepreneur network meetings and encourage any researchers, students or staff on campus with a business idea to come forward to get support through the various activities of the campus-wide enterprise strategy by emailing
