How To Apply For Investment In Your Start Up Or Growing Company

Do you have a compelling story that will make us want to meet you?
Companies seeking investment from Surrey Investors Club will only be considered for investment where they can demonstrate both a high growth opportunity and a compelling business case. Here are some of the things to consider before applying:

  • Are you willing to give up some amount of ownership and control of your company?
  • Can you demonstrate that your company will produce a significant return for investors?
  • Are you willing take advice from investors and accept board of director decisions you may not always agree with?
  • Do you have an exit plan for your company that may mean you’re not involved in 3 to 5 years’ time?

What Do I Do Next?

We do not accept unsolicited applications for investment.  Instead, we seek recommendations from our membership base, many of whom are very active business angels who participate in multiple networks and are otherwise well connected to investment opportunities.

If one of our members identifies a potential opportunity that they feel would be of interest to members then they will invite you to submit details for consideration. The invitation will be by email containing a link to provide information to us. Alternatively the member may ask one of our officers or administrators to send you that invitation.

To present your case for investment to an Surrey Investors Club meeting, your presentation will need to be supported by, at the very least, an Executive Summary of no more than 2 pages, a Business Plan, a set of Accounts (if available) and a Cash Flow Forecast.

Please note that all submissions will be considered to be in the public domain unless and until we have signed a confidentiality agreement.
