HBAN All Island Business Angel Conference 2012

About the Conference

The third All-Island Business Angel Conference will take place in the Gibson Hotel on 3rd October 2012. Dedicated to Ireland's Angel Capital Industry, the conference will seek to accelerate business angel activity in Ireland by furthering knowledge and understanding. The event is being run by the Halo Business Angel Network (HBAN) which is a joint initiative of InterTradeIreland and Enterprise Ireland.

HBAN is the all island umbrella organisation which works in partnership with the Irish BICs and Halo NI to promote business angel investment and create business angel syndicates. The 2012 conference is themed ‘Harness the power of the collective’. It will feature internationally renowned speakers who will talk about trends in angel investment worldwide as well as looking at what it takes to build successful teams, such as angel investment syndicates and entrepreneur and angel investor teams.

Investors and prospective investors with an interest in finding out more about angel investment and investing as part of a syndicate should attend this year’s conference. They will have the opportunity to meet and network with members of Ireland’s business angel community who will share their insights and experience.

Keynote speaker, Mark Denton, will deliver his rollercoaster ‘Leadership and teamwork in the eye of the storm’ presentation. Mark is the acclaimed skipper of the ‘BP Explorer' and will discuss his experiences leading a team to success in ‘the world’s toughest yacht race’, the BT Global Challenge.

A panel discussion will also take place allowing attendees to ask questions of the experts on raising angel funding and making investments as a syndicate.

This year’s main sponsor is international law firm, Eversheds.
