Beer & Partners is the UK's leading business angel network, which means that we specialise in matching fund-seeking businesses with appropriate investors. We are effectively the real life version of Dragons' Den, but crucially, we operate without the television cameras and the humiliation! That's not to say it's any less exciting; we meet with hundreds of fund-seeking entrepreneurs and inventors each year, with a whole range of inventions, businesses and target markets - from treasure hunters to West End musicals, medical breakthroughs to wind turbines, you name it: we will consider it (and have probably raised money for something similar in the past.) However, we are very selective about who we take on; only the best make the grade, and go on to present to appropriate 'business angels' (private investors) from our 1,800 strong database. When it comes to what we do – we are the best, and our success rate is better than double the industry average. Around 50% of our clients go on to secure the money, and we raise a total of over £12m for around 50 businesses each year.
