SpeedFunding™ Reaches The Middle East

Angels Den, one of the largest Angel networks, held its first SpeedFunding™ event in the Middle East on Wednesday 30th November 2011.

Local budding entrepreneurs and business owners looking to take their business to the next level will pitch their business idea, for three minutes, on a one-to-one basis to Angel investors in Doha, Qatar.

“We chose Qatar as our base for the Middle East as it has a burgeoning enterprise community and whilst there is no shortage of capital and an increasing amount of good companies to invest in” says Bill Morrow Founder of Angels Den.

SpeedFundings’™ success is attributed to the chemistry that starts to evolve during a face-to-face discussion between the business owner and Angel, which simply doesn’t happen when an entrepreneur presents to Angels ‘en masse’. On average 90% of businesses pitching at a SpeedFunding™ event gain at least one interested Angel and some have as many as ten from a single event.

Angels Den Qatar is up and running and will be running regular SpeedFunding™ events as well as continuing to match business owners and Angel Investors in order to get some great businesses in the Middle East funded.
