LBA Investor Club Meeting

18 April 2011

Topic: Effective Due Diligence for Angel Investors
Hosts: Kingston Smith LLP

Recent research has suggested that angel returns are positively affected by time spent on due diligence ('Siding with the Angels', BBAA/Nesta, 2009). But what constitutes effective due diligence for angel investors and what issues should an investor take into account when assessing a business?

This networking/professional development workshop will feature an interactive panel session with industry experts focusing on key issues surrounding the due diligence process for investors. There will be lots of opportunity for audience participation, drawing on the experiences of LBA’s investor members.

Issues to be examined will include:


  • Mark Boggett, Managing Director, Seraphim Capital
  • Marc Fecher, Specialist Corporate Finance Partner, Kingston Smith
  • Paul Humphries, Experienced Angel Investor
  • Justin Hill, Partner, IPULSE IP and Patent Attorneys
