For Business Angels
We support your journey as an early-stage investor by providing an active and supportive community where you get to expand your skills in angel investing. Our members consist of business angels who are looking to learn about startup investing and make their own startup investments.
One of the largest and most active
business angel networks in Europe
We guide you through the world of early-stage investing and link you with the potential high-growth companies. You get to build your networks, attend word-class training, and enable the next success stories together with your co-investors and startups.
The industry experts of our partner companies provide services supporting your portfolio companies’ growth. Together we aim to make an impact by strengthening the Finnish startup ecosystem by offering high-quality education and materials.
This is what we offer you
Quality deal flow & networks
At FiBAN, we receive startup applications from all sectors of business across the Nordics and Baltics. We arrange screening boards and pitching events throughout the year, where we introduce the most potential startups to invest in, where you get to share and learn startup evaluation best practices, and to meet your potential future co-investors. Get access to cross-border deal flow, networks, and tools that help you to analyze startups.
World-class education & training
We have carefully designed an extensive educational set that suits both experienced angel investors and newcomers. You can expand your skillset and network in several different ways: angel investing training, networking events, investment contracts, material and guidelines – also online! Together with our partners, we have put together a wide set of educational materials and tools that enhance your learning experience.
Personal credit rating protection
As a FiBAN’s approved angel investor, you can apply for the limitation of your credit responsibilities, “credit rating protection”. Personal credit ratings could be affected by for example a startup bankruptcy in which the investor is a board member. The credit rating restricts the responsibilities from reaching the investor’s personal credit ratings.
Through quality research and analysis, we actively develop research in angel investing and offer valuable Finnish business angel investing statistics for the whole startup ecosystem. We share the latest news about business angel investing in FiBAN news and social media and keep our investor members and partners updated via newsletters.
FiBAN Partners are a vital part of our community. Our partners offer services to our investor members and their portfolio companies from a wide offering ranging from legal due diligence to exits and share their knowledge through FiBAN training. You can read more about the partner benefits here. Partner materials and contract templates can be found in our member portal Startup Includer.
We have several documents and tools available to support the startup investing life cycle from scouting to exit. Our contract templates include Shareholders agreement (SHA), CEO’s agreement, term sheet, syndication agreement, option agreement and convertible note. Additionally, we offer tools such as the FiBAN Scoring matrix that is a simple due diligence tool used for measuring startups’ credibility.
We organize delegation trips to the promised lands of startups. Our delegation trips are well-liked and they offer a unique opportunity to build connections; to get to meet the most active startup ecosystem players and build strong connections with fellow angel investor travelers. Accommodation and other travel at own expense, but we take care of all the other arrangements, program, visits, networking possibilities – just to mention a few!
A supportive community
We actively support the development of the Finnish startup investment culture. In 2014, The President of the Republic of Finland, Sauli Niinistö, awarded FiBAN the Internationalization Award 2017. Our activities influence the public sector with activities supporting angel investing including benchmarking of international angel investing legislation and taxation best practices.
