The team at Angel Investment Network and SeedTribe have received a lot of positive press coverage recently including the Financial Times, the Guardian and BBC Radio 4.
It’s always rewarding to get public attention for your hard work. But more importantly, it’s great that our message is reaching a wider audience. Especially those people we can potentially help to find funding or great investment opportunities!
The most recent publications build a nice picture of what we are trying to accomplish over the coming months.
The focus falls, in particular, on our mission to drive positive change in the world. We are trying to increase the accessibility of the early-stage investment space, opening it up to a more diverse spectrum of investors (women and younger investors in particular). And we are helping ‘impact’ entrepreneurs get the right sort of investment for their projects.
Raconteur: Angel Investment Network & SeedTribe advocate a change in attitude towards Plastic Use
David Attenborough’s Blue Planet and the more recent BBC film “Drowning in Plastic” have brought the plastic epidemic to a global audience.
Universal horror has propelled action and a number of entrepreneurs have come forward with innovative solutions to the problem. One of these, Ahmed Detta, is currently fundraising for his recycling solution on SeedTribe.
In the midst of this backlash against plastic, we felt it important to make the point that plastic is an awesome resource with so many applications –
the real problem is not plastic, but our attitude towards it.

Angel News: Angel Investment Network & SeedTribe support Millennial Investors
I wrote a comment piece for Angel News which ties in with Liv’s argument for women investors and the impact sector.
My thoughts centred on how younger generations of investors are motivated by conscience as well as the desire for wealth generation. I argue that companies like SeedTribe should do everything we can to harness this for the good of impact projects and the future of the planet.
