Business Angels

Invest capital and expertise by joining a network of investors to support innovative startups

What do IAG business angels have in common? They are people who bet on their own and other partners' ability to make profitable investments both for themselves and for the selected startups. They are managers, professionals, entrepreneurs. They know the risks involved in high potential investments and know that the results will be seen in the medium to long term. Above all, they believe in the strength of the partners' unique mix of skills, experience and relationships to support young technology companies in their growth path.

Who is a business angel?

A business angel is a person who invests capital as well as time and expertise to support motivated and talented start-up founders to develop business projects.

In IAG there are over 300 business angels working together to achieve what is difficult to get as an individual: the sharing of experiences and circulation of knowledge, better risk management, a reduction in due diligence costs and a search for investment opportunities.
