Bill Morrow, co-founder of the platform, released a statement on the just published research on the UK alternative finance sector, specifically equity crowdfunding. Morrow labeled the growth impressive;
?The speed and scale of growth in the alternative finance sector is staggering. We are particularly excited that equity crowdfunding has become a significant part of venture funding in the UK because this is good for early stage companies and SMEs that need financing to grow, and good for investors who want exposure to high risk, high return investments.?
The Angels Den team is in Mexico for the official launch of Angels Den Mexico at the Instituto Nacional del Emprenedor (INADEM), a non-profit entity that supports entrepreneurs.
AngelsDen revealed this past August that it had raised $1 million from a Mexican family office to launch their angel-led crowdfunding model across Mexico, with bases in five different cities.
Angels Den hopes to replicate it has experienced in the UK. The platform combines online equity crowdfunding with a vibrant in person process of investor meetups, education seminars and outreach.
