Enterprise Angels (EA) is a membership-based investment network. Members make individual investment decisions but do so together drawing on each other’s experience and expertise. This approach increases the returns from and success of investments. Our objective is to connect experienced investors with entrepreneurs and innovators.
EA is a unique model of early stage investing in New Zealand having a full-time management team and a deep collection of qualified investors to assist entrepreneurs in obtaining the resources they need - funds as well as skills and expertise. We regard this as a ‘best practice’ model for investing in early stage companies – an efficient capital raising process for entrepreneurs and investors adding real value as well as capital to investee companies.
We look for investment opportunities with unique innovation and technology and global scale. We invest in IT technology but predominantly in agri-tech, food, hort-tech and biotech companies.
EA is a member of the Angel Association of New Zealand (AANZ), a network of more than a dozen angel groups and funds throughout the country. We promote and facilitate investor education by providing education events, active learning opportunities on actual deals and best practice procedures.
By encouraging and promoting investment and innovation, we drive economic and business development within the Bay of Plenty region and New Zealand.
