The call for nominations for the 2012 BBAA National Awards have now been launched

29 May 2012

These Awards are now open for nominations and BBAA invites Angel investors, VCs, SMEs, advisors and all those working with early stage investing to put forward their nominations to win one of these prestigious awards. The deadline for all nominations is Wednesday the 20th June; these nominations will then be judged by an independent expert panel.

Six carefully selected awards will be presented to both entrepreneurs and investors to represent achievements in the early stage investment market including, the prestigious “Angel Investor of the Year” award. BBAA encourage you to send in your nominations and join us in celebrating “Success in the Angel Investing Community” at the BBAA’s Annual Awards Dinner, taking place on Monday 2nd July 2012.

The awards this year will focus on key areas of the market where angels have made investments, such as angel-backed deals in technology and the social impact arena. Also being highlighted are best syndicated deal of the year, early stage team of the year and best female investment of the year, to encourage more men and especially women to recognise the opportunity to use their financial wealth and business expertise to invest in innovating entrepreneurs and the growth of Britain’s small businesses. Downloadable nomination forms can be found on our website or by clicking HERE.

This prestigious black-tie event has become a focal point in the angel investment calendar to recognise and celebrate achievements of angel and early stage investment. The Awards Dinner will be held at the magnificent Swan Dining Room, at the historic Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on London’s Southbank, one of the most uniquely interesting venues of the Capital. This event offers unrivalled opportunities for networking with all key players in the early stage investment market place.

Last year, the 2011 Annual BBAA Awards Dinner was attended by over 180 delegates and received significant media coverage. This year we expect the 2012 event to generate even more exposure, due to it coinciding with the official launch of the BBAA’s new name and mandate as the UK Business Angels Association, UKBAA, running alongside major government drives and campaign launches, such as the ‘Be an Angel’ initiative which has been commissioned by Lord Young to raise awareness and encourage more people to become Business Angel Investors.

The National Awards Dinner follows the National Investment Summit being held at the ICAEW, EC2 during the day. For more information on the National Investment Summit and package prices to attend both events, please click HERE.

We would like to encourage you to consider the idea of taking a table of 10 for the price of 9 people (see below) offering you the opportunity to invite your key contacts and colleagues to join you at this prestigious black tie event that has become a focal point in the angel investment calendar. This exciting event offers unrivalled opportunities for networking with all key players in the early stage investment market place and could therefore be of considerable value for you to bring your colleagues and your investors and also potentially investee businesses” to leverage your organisation within the wider investment community.
