Access to Finance 


Over 210 start-ups have received funding from angel investors in the past five years, with a total of €138M invested.  The benefits of angel investment over other types are well recognised. Investors bring “Smart Money” - experience, knowledge, contacts and time and can be an extremely valuable resource to any start-up team. 

HBAN is the largest business angel network in Ireland with ten different angel groups and syndicates, in operation both across Ireland and overseas, investing directly into Irish companies. Business angel activity in Ireland grew 25% year-on-year in 2016, with €13.6m in direct angel investment into 50 companies.
