BBAA 2009 Winter Workshop
On 20th January the BBAA held their latest workshop hosted by NESTA. The BBAA’s 4th Annual Winter Workshop on 20th January hosted at NESTA’s London headquarters offered an opportunity for over 100 policy makers, experts and practitioners in the early stage investment market to review the challenges of the current economic climate.
Anthony Clarke, Chair of BBAA stated, “At this time of extreme challenge for the survival and growth of early stage companies, there is an even greater need to recognise the importance of Business Angel investment and to capitalise on their funding and business building skills as a direct complement to this package of Government measures. Angel equity investment is frequently made alongside bank loans and other forms of debt finance as part of a balanced finance package to meet SMEs early stage funding needs.
