Green Angel Syndicate in Scotland
GAS held its inaugural pitch event in Edinburgh - the first GAS pitch event outside London - on 30th May 2019. Co-hosts, the Chartered Banker Institute provided the elegant venue.
Four early-stage Scottish companies pitched to an audience of 30 invited angel investors at Green Angel Syndicate's first foray outside of London. Co-host Simon Thompson, CEO of the Chartered Banker Institute, welcomed the investors and presenters with a poignant speech about the need for the UK business and financial community to embrace investment in the green economy. Progress is being made but more needs to be done.
