What is Speedfunding? Drawing on the speed dating format, Speedfunding was pioneered by Angels Den to give investors the chance to see a wide range of carefully selected businesses in a short space of time. Every month, we screen around 300 companies and select 6 to pitch at this event.
What makes it so cool? Entrepreneurs get to pitch in front of many investors in a short space of time, while investors get the chance to ask essential questions throughout the pitch. Nobody's time is wasted. The businesses come from a wide range of sectors, including tech, food and drink and consumer products. All pitches are prescreened and entrepreneurs go through a pitching workshop to make sure they include all the relevant information an investor wants to hear in 5 minutes.
How can one book a place to the event? If you are an entrepreneur looking to raise money for your startup, the first step is to join Angels Den as an entrepreneur. It is free to register and begin creating a pitch. You will need to answer some simple questions about your business to see if you match our investment criteria. Find out more about raising with Angels Den. Our team will then guide you to see which event format suits your business best.
If you are an investor looking for early-stage businesses that have strong growth potential, join Angels Den to have access to prescreened startups and great events. After completing the investment questionnaire, you will be contacted by someone from our team to discuss in more details about your preferences. Learn more about how to invest. If you are new to investing, we also offer free masterclasses that cover various topics such as due dilligence, valuations or tax relief for investors.
