Experienced Angels and entrepreneurs will describe effective governance and mentoring strategies.

Sessions focus on international Angel investment best practices covering key issues including consideration of a possible investment through to managing risk, relationships and strategies to enable successful exits from investments.

The Programme features speakers from Europe, Canada, USA, South America, Asia & the sub-continent, Australia and New Zealand. It includes Angels, other investors, successful entrepreneurs, policy developers, industry partners, government representatives and professional service providers. See the full programme.
