Startup Angels Teams Up with Google for Entrepreneurs to Accelerate Startup Investing Communities Globally

Entrepreneurs / 15th February 2016

Startup Angels and Google for Entrepreneurs are pleased to announce their partnership to accelerate startup investing worldwide. Recognizing the significant need for more early stage capital in more communities, Startup Angels has partnered with Google for Entrepreneurs to help catalyze growth in startup investing globally.

Beginning with AngelSummit Europe June 8-9, in Dublin, Startup Angels and Google for Entrepreneurs will hold a series of summits, workshops, and programs around the world for new and expert startup investors. These events will explore best practices in, and chart the future of, startup investing.

“Startups are everywhere, but venture capital isn’t.  We’re on a mission to eliminate the problem of ‘access to capital’ by unleashing the potential of millions of new startup investors around the world,” says Startup Angels Founder and CEO, Leslie Jump. “Our partnership with Google for Entrepreneurs gives us the resources and network to significantly accelerate the pace and expand the scope of our vision.”

In its third year of operations, Startup Angels’ mission is to increase the number of startup investors and the amount of capital available in communities across the U.S. and around the world. The organization combines its conferences and workshops with original storytelling, in-depth research, and tools and technology to guide aspiring investors into becoming great Startup Angels. Their goal is to double the number of investors by 2018, from fewer than 500,000 angels to more than a million.

“Through partners around the world and directly at Google’s Campuses, we’ve helped thousands of entrepreneurs get their companies off the ground. Invariably though they need capital to grow,” says Mary Grove, Director of Google for Entrepreneurs. “Our partnership with Startup Angels is a major addition to the Google for Entrepreneurs Partner Network, and we’re excited about their potential to help talented entrepreneurs around the world access capital. We hope this partnership will inspire and educate thousands of new angels in startup communities beyond Silicon Valley.”
