FiBAN has decided to welcome a new membership category to our network: an angel friendly investor, to complement the existing membership groups: angel investor members, honorary members, and partners. The criteria to join is that one needs to be a member of their local venture capital association, Pääomasijoittajat, in Finland or a similar entity abroad and that the new member’s industry is directly or indirectly related to venture capital.

An angel friendly investor will enjoy member benefits similar to those of angel investor members:

  • access to quality startups, in particular the thousands of companies which angels have in their portfolios
  • possibility to participate in FiBAN’s events, trainings, webinars, delegation trips – close to 100 opportunities annually

As for the angel’s benefits, a VC can help one’s existing portfolio company reach its next funding milestone. For an angel this can mean an exit or a partial exit, or to the possibility to stay onboard the growing startup. 

To join FiBAN, please send an email with a brief description of your company to The annual membership fee is 440 euros, and in addition, there is a one-time joining fee of 250 euros. The FiBAN board approves all new members in its boarding meetings. All FiBAN members are expected to commit to and follow FiBAN’s ethical rules. Please review them here.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!
