The latest opportunity represents something new again and is called the Angel Business Club.
I attended a seminar they held just before Christmas and was impressed enough by it that I decided to join up as a paying member.
What is the Angel Business Club All About?
In essence the Club provides the chance to be invested in a range of start-up companies.
Normally this is something that is closed off to the vast majority of people and only venture capitalists like the guys you see on “Dragons Den” would have the chance to become involved in start-up companies.
For a lot of investors this is very frustrating because investing in new start-ups can be one of the most profitable forms of investment possible.
Think of the early investors in Facebook, Uber, Airbnb and the like and the vast fortunes they have amassed from being able to invest at the earliest stages of those companies, well before they floated on the stock market.
Venture capitalists who were able to do this have apparently made hundred-fold, or even thousand-fold, their original investment.
There is even a story of a cleaner at the Google offices in the very early days of the company who was given a few hundred shares to thank them for their hard work, and now those shares are worth millions!
Whether it is true or not, the story gives you an idea of the incredible value that can be obtained from being an early investor in a company.
This is where the Angel Business Club comes in. When you join up as a member, you pay a monthly fee and in exchange for that you receive monthly share entitlements in new start up companies.
It is all completely legal and legit and has been running for a couple of years now and has:
- – Become Europe’s largest community of business angels with over 10,000 members
- – Developed 10 Companies and driven 2 IPOs with more to come in 2018
- – Built a complex and scalable financial e-platform
The Angel Business Club has an experienced professional team with decades of business and financial experience behind them who vet the potential companies to invest in and then help nurture them.
The beauty of it as an investor is that you don’t have to do anything, just let the team do all the work and sit back and receive the shares.
Of course the big question you are probably eager to know the answer to is what their track record is like in terms of returns.
Well apparently gains on the portfolio have ranged from 40-70% per year for members to date, which comfortably beats the stock market average and certainly any savings account.
A notable success includes Wide Cells Group, a stem cell company which the Angel Business Club (ABC) took from an early stage company to float on the stockmarket and the IPO price represented a doubling in value to the price ABC members received shares at (8p to 16p).
Gains will of course vary and all investments in early-stage companies are high-risk, but the track record so far looks very good.
There are some very exciting opportunities at the moment, including:-
- Britannia’s Gold – an expedition to recover billions of pounds worth of gold sunk during WW1 and WW2. Decades of research has identified specific locations of ships and recovery operations have been started.
- Natural Drinks Company – delicious, all-natural, sugar-free soft drinks made with nothing but the purest ingredients. Products already on the market and more are ready. Has been described as the “next Fever Tree.”
- MyTown – facilitating the comeback of local commerce by supplying advanced and user-friendly Rewards & Mobile payment platforms to local merchants and businesses.
So some very interesting investments there. In addition to these, there are 17 other companies currently on the ABC books.
I have recently joined up and will do a full review of the Club here, including the return on investment of my subscription over the course of the year.
This could be a great chance to invest in the next big companies of tomorrow, whilst also becoming involved in an investment community with regular meet-ups, online forums and webinars.
