Angels4LifeSciences (A4LS) was established in 2012 to help overcome the perceived challenges of investing in early-stage life sciences companies.
A4LS is a not-for-profit nationwide network that provides angels with the opportunity to assess life science businesses that have already been selected by industry experts, and that have the endorsement that comes from having already secured a cornerstone investor and an experienced business mentor.
The objective of A4LS is to provide a means of communication between private investors and companies seeking investment capital in the small, high growth potential business sector. A4LS operates as an information service, providing a platform for investors seeking equity investment opportunities, to meet entrepreneurs and companies seeking investment, and enabling investors to receive information on investment opportunities of interest to them.
Are you looking to invest in some of the UK’s most exciting and innovative life science companies? Are you already a life sciences Investor who is looking to for a dedicated sector investment community?
A4LS comprises both sector-experienced angels and generalists; the first to provide the validation and confidence needed for the generalists to invest in the sector. A4LS does not take any fees to enable 100% of your investment to go back into helping your chosen company grow.
To be part of A4LS, angels must be able to self-certify as either High Net Worth individuals or knowledgeable investors, and should be able to consider investments in the order of £100,000 over the life of the company.
Contact A4LS to find out how you can get involved.
Are you a life science business that is looking for business support and funding to help move your business to the next stage?
All applicants need to have identified a Cornerstone Investor and a Mentor, who will provide a strong degree of validation to angel investors. A Cornerstone Investor is either an angel or small fund that is significantly committed to the investment (typically more than 15% of the investment). A Mentor will have relevant industry experience that is committed to the company's growth and success. In many cases the Cornerstone Investor and the Mentor will be the same person. A key attraction to A4LS Angels is the opportunity to invest in high-quality Life-Sciences companies that have been selected by industry experts, and that have the endorsement that comes from having already secured a Cornerstone Investor and Mentor.
A4LS is pleased to announce its collaboration with MedCity. The A4LS Team help review plans and provide sector specific knowledge on companies.
