The Anglia Capital Group (ACG) is a private investor network developed to link angel investors to quality deal flow in Norfolk and Suffolk. The group is open to business angels and investors interested in backing the best innovation springing from the two counties.
Since it was launched by Government Minister George Freeman, in November 2014, ACG now have around 50 members who have collectively invested over £4 Million into early-stage businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk. As the selected partner of the New Anglia LEP’s co-investment fund, ‘New Anglia Capital’, businesses have the opportunity to leverage match funding against ACG angel investment on a pound for pound basis. In this way the LEP can work with business angels to encourage economic development through job creation in early-stage businesses with high growth potential in sectors such as agricultural technology.
The Group is currently expanding and invites private angel investors interested in exciting high growth companies in the region to contact them as per the details below.
To build on ACG’s excellent relationship with Agri-Tech East, the Group is open to corporate membership from companies and organisations in the field of agri-tech. Indeed, whilst ACG welcomes applications from the life science, health, engineering and energy sectors, it is particularly important that applications for private venture funding come from those involved in agricultural innovation, as it is such an important sector in East Anglia.
ACG is based at the Centrum Building on the Norwich Research Park. The Group holds several investor events a year in Norfolk and Suffolk.
