Yorkshire Association of Business Angels (YABA)
Yorkshire Association of Business Angels (YABA) is an introduction service that puts private equity investors looking to invest in start-up, growth and turnaround opportunities, in touch with entrepreneurs and companies seeking finance.
Following eighteen successful years of supporting business angels and entrepreneurs in Yorkshire, YABA has now spread its wings and expanded its geographic outreach to include the whole of the North of England.
Business angels privide a vital source of funding to fill the equity gap in the high risk, early stages of business. They may invest sums of up to Â£300k but more usually keep within a range of Â£10k to Â£100k. In some cases, a group of business angels may come together in a syndicate particularly in cases where a large amount of finance is sought. Importantly angels are able to offer a wealth of business expertise and advice, as well as private equity.
Yorkshire Association of Business Angels is managed by Envestors Limited which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. YABA is also a member of the UK Business Angels Association.
