Enterprise Angels offers our portfolio companies so much more than just funding!
The post-investment relationship with Angel Investors is very important. Enterprise Angels Investors may be able to provide expertise, contacts and more. If you want to find out a bit more about your investors’ expertise, please get in touch.
To maximise this relationship, we recently developed an Investor Rep programme.
While the Enterprise Angels staff remain relatively static, the number of investee companies is growing and we want to maintain great connections with all of you. The Enterprise Angels Investor Rep will be a shareholder in your company and will assist in investor relations between Enterprise Angels, your company and your Enterprise Angels shareholders, to ensure all parties get the most out of the relationship. When we have chosen an Enterprise Angels Investor Rep for you, we will provide a personal introduction.
Communications to your Investors
It is important to ensure quarterly reports are sent to shareholders within 30 working days after the end of the quarter. If you have any ‘asks’ be sure to mention them, whether that be recruiting or asking for advice in certain areas. Keeping your shareholders up to date will certainly help if you need another round of funding at any stage. Poor communication generally amounts to poor follow-on in capital raises.
We encourage you to attend our pitch nights from time to time, to hear what else is happening in the Angel space, keep in contact with your shareholders and potential new investors. Click here for future Pitch Night dates and contact us at least 3 weeks in advance if you would like to provide an update or pitch for funding.
Follow-on rounds and shareholder consents
When you require follow-on funding or consent from shareholders, our nominee company acts on the instructions of underlying investors, so simply:
- Forward your message with supporting documents to us
- We will circulate and collate responses and provide a single response back to you
- We recommend you try to allow 2 weeks for communications to be distributed, responses received and collated and paperwork returned.
In addition to our Angel Members, we also have a wider wholesale Investor audience including over 1000 additional investors and referees interested in the early stage investment space.

Corporate and Strategic Partners
We are proud to work with a professional group of partners who have strong reputations throughout the Bay of Plenty and New Zealand and are strong supporters of startups. If you are in the market for any of their services, we strongly recommend you talk to them first regarding your needs – for a full listing please refer here.
You can refer potential investors to the Angel 101 session, and your board may find the Governance Course and the Active Portfolio Management of interest.
