As well as our membership of Angel Networks and VC Funds, the BBAA also has a growing membership of professional service providers; organisations other than Business Angel Groups who have evident interest in the business angel and SME investment market. Our Associate members include corporate financiers, academics, solicitors, accountants, advisors,  and other relevant professionals and intermediaries. BBAA welcomes further organisations to join as professional service provider members.
