London Business Angels (LBA) are one of the best UK investment funds that I have encountered. They give you professional pitch training. Also, once you become one of their portfolio companies, they give you exceptional and astute business advice. LBA adds value!

LBA played a significant role in a number of fund raising rounds for FlatClub. From help to improve the pitch, to setting a syndicate, and negotiating deals - I had a professional and efficient experience. What impressed me even further is that the LBA continued to support the business as we grow in advice and introductions, which helped close subsequent funding rounds. Highly recommended!
