How can business angels help?

They have an appetite to invest in financially distressed situations and their experience of managing change, clarifying objectives and of setting and realising goals is of immeasurable value.

Our turnaround business angel network (t-ban) matches pro-active investors with businesses facing financial difficulties setting them off on a fresh track. Investors usually participate in the management of the company to restructure the business introducing new working capital, new management and re-engineering business practices.

Situations where t-ban has already been successful vary widely assisting companies with turnovers between £500,000 and £20 million and making investments ranging up to £500,000.

If you are a business manager or professional with time and/or money to invest in companies in difficulty which need financial backing and strategic guidance consider joining t-ban by contacting us or download our turnaround finance brochure.
