The Archangels’ Share
The Story of the World's First Syndicate of Business AngelsKenny Kemp
The remarkable inside story of Archangels, the oldest and one of the biggest business angel syndicates in the world.
In 1992, angel investment was practically unheard of in Scotland… 25 years later, Archangels has invested more than £200m into some 80 early-stage companies, helping them grow into flourishing enterprises. This book uncovers the unique business relationship between Archangels founders Barry Sealey and Mike Rutterford, and follows their groundbreaking journey to the present day.
Providing invaluable advice for would-be investors, The Archangels’ Share tells of successes and failures along the way, explores just how they formed such a successful business angel syndicate, and explains why Scotland has emerged as a global leader in angel investing. And it reveals the energy, passion and skill of two extraordinary men who created an international phenomenon. With a foreword by Sir Brian Souter.
