Enterprise Angels is a membership-based investment network and a wider community of nationwide wholesale investors. Our objective is to connect experienced early stage investors with entrepreneurs and innovators. We believe that growing innovative, socially and environmentally responsible companies is the key to ensuring people, communities, businesses, the environment, and the economy thrive. Enterprise Angels was formed in 2008. Since that time Enterprise Angels has evolved into one of the largest, most active and best resourced Angel groups in the country with over 200 members, who have a wide range of expertise. Enterprise Angels is a unique model of early stage investing in New Zealand having a full-time team and a deep collection of qualified investors to assist entrepreneurs in obtaining the resources they need – funds as well as skills, expertise and connections. We regard this as a ‘best practice’ model for investing in early stage companies – an efficient capital raising process for entrepreneurs and investors adding real value as well as capital to investee companies.
