AngelLoft Launches Unique Program To Assist Entrepreneurs

At AngelLoft we’ve launched a unique Entrepreneur in Residence Program, which is designed to assist entrepreneurs in the growth of their new ventures and prepare them for securing funding.

The program extends both the range of involvement and the impact that AngelLoft’s angel investor members can have with entrepreneurs.

As I see it, the EiR Program exponentially increases AngelLoft’s value proposition as an angel investor group from being deal driven to now also assisting a select few entrepreneurs by acting as a mentor and sounding board for them.

Participants in the Entrepreneur in Residence Program get a seat at AngelLoft’s Dinners at which they can interact with the group’s high powered and highly experienced members. In addition, some of the group’s members also provide the Entrepreneurs in Residence with ongoing mentoring.

Once they are ready to secure funding, the entrepreneurs are guaranteed a much sought after pitch slot at an AngelLoft Dinner.

AngelLoft has appointed its first two Entrepreneurs in Residence – Sara Lucas, founder of EnrichMe, and Pete Sanders, founder of BrixHQ.

With solid blue chip experience in the finance sector, Sara saw a yawning gap between what smart women want from their money and how to get it. Some 89% of Australian women have no money plan in place. She set up EnrichMe to provide women with reliable money information and to empower them to make good choices.

Speaking on being chosen for the program, she said, “I’m thrilled to be accepted to this groundbreaking AngelLoft Program. This opportunity is unique in that it provides unfettered, yet structured access to a select group of angel investors who are themselves leaders in their field, committed to accelerating the sustainable growth of companies like EnrichMe.”

Pete has had experience in financial services software and has translated his passion for creating quality solutions that make life easier and more efficient for users into developing an agile project management system.

BrixHQ’s 1.0 version provides a flexible dashboard with wall, gantt chart, task and graph tabs. The product can be used by everyone who runs agile projects, be they software developers in a small team or marketers in a large enterprise team.

Sara and Pete will be attending their first AngelLoft Dinner on Tuesday, 29th March.

AngelLoft: A Manifesto for Angel Investing

Angel investing continues to grow by leaps and bounds and with it the level of interest in the space.

After having launched AngelLoft in December last year I’ve constantly found myself explaining to people – both angel investors and entrepreneurs alike – what it is we do, how we operate and what differentiates us.

And so I decided it was high time to crystallise a manifesto that I, our current and prospective members and entrepreneurs could refer to.

Expect an exciting announcement from AngelLoft next week, and if you haven’t already – RSVP for the next dinner on the 29th!
