About this event

Why improve Europe's Angel Investment Landscape?

Europe lags behind the US in terms of angel investment and crowdfunding, but in recent years there's been a significant rise in the number of start-ups and entrepreneurial ventures across Europe.

Cities are turning into start-up hubs, accelerators and incubators are popping up everywhere. Business angel networks are becoming increasingly popular - pooling funds allows angels to spread out the costs of expensive due diligence, and when active investors combine their expertise, it makes for better guidance for the startups.

However, Europe continues to struggle to find incentives to facilitate access to finance and to attract and keep young entrepreneurs. In Europe there are still large differences between countries, regions and cities, and the ratio between investors and high net worth individuals is extremely low when compared to the US.

Initiatives like ESIL aim to improve this ratio. By developing cross-border networks of business angels and crowdfunders and improving Europe's angel investment landscape, we will increase opportunities for entrepreneurs and innovative start-ups, which in turn will boost Europe's economy. Angel investors benefit, entrepreneurs benefit, Europeans benefit.
