The remarkable inside story of Archangels, the oldest and one of the biggest business angel syndicates in the world. In 1992, angel investment was unheard of in the business community in Scotland… yet just a quarter of a century later, Archangels has led investment of over £220m into more than 80 early-stage companies, helping many of them grow into flourishing enterprises.
This book uncovers the unique business relationship between Archangels' founders Barry Sealey and Mike Rutterford, and follows their groundbreaking journey to the present day. Providing invaluable advice for would-be investors, The Archangels' Share tells of successes and failures along the way, explores just how they formed such a successful business angel syndicate, and explains why Scotland has emerged as a global leader in angel investing. And it reveals the energy, passion and skill of two extraordinary men who created an international phenomenon.
