Equity Gap, a leading Scottish business angel syndicate, focused on funding emerging Scottish businesses with growth potential, has reported strong investment activity and vigorous deal flow.
Investments completed during the last year include Insignia Technologies, Synaptec, Appointedd, Shotscope and VERT Rotors, making it Scotland’s busiest syndicate in the first half of 2016.
The syndicate has rapidly grown from 15 original founders to 100 members, completing over 50 rounds of funding, since 2010. Through the co-investment model it has leveraged £19.9m investment into the Scottish economy in partnership with Scottish Investment Bank and other syndicates.
Scotland has fostered a vibrant business angel community since the early 90’s and the global angel community looks to the Scottish model – including the pioneering public private co-investment fund – to inspire and instruct.
